Review for Home Free:

Since being crowned NBC’s The Sing-Off victors, Home Free has made their mark on the music scene selling more than 200,000 copies combined of their popular albums, embarking on four major national tours and amassing over 140 million YouTube views.

The release of their third studio album, Country Evolution, has elevated the band “from auxiliary entertainment to headlining attraction” (Times Leader) and hit No. 4 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Produced by Darren Rust, the deluxe version includes five originals and nine new renditions of hit songs that showcase the band’s extraordinary talents, tight harmonies and intelligent arrangements that are uniquely their own.

Home Free’s breakout debut album, Crazy Life, (2014) hit No. 1 on iTunes Country chart and No. 4 overall. In 2016, the release of Full of (Even More) Cheer, an expanded version of their popular holiday album, Full of Cheer, debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Country Album’s chart.

Founded in 2000 during collegiate years, the five-man band from Minnesota has been perfecting their live show for nearly a decade performing together for packed crowds at major fairs, colleges and theatres. Their experiences on the road helped carry them to The Sing-Off victory, build a loyal fan base and bring their homegrown country style into the national spotlight.
