“Home Free, also known as the Home Free Vocal Band, is a country-tinged a cappella group formed in 2000 in Mankato, Minnesota when its members were still in their teens. Comprising singers Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist, Chris Rupp, Tim Foust, and Adam Rupp, Home Free had a large enough fan base by 2007 to pursue music full-time. Essentially structured like a traditional barbershop quartet, with a lead tenor, two harmony voices, and a bass, with the fifth member providing percussion sounds, Home Free’s big break into the public eye came when they competed on and won the fourth season of NBC’s The Sing-Off in 2013.”

“It’s been quite a journey for Tim, Rob, Austin and their bandmates, Adam Chance and Adam Rupp.

The guys earned the national spotlight by winning season four of the NBC singing competition “The Sing-Off.” Their perfect harmonies and impeccable musicianship quickly made them both a fan favorite and a household name, as well as snagging them a deal with Columbia Records.

Since then, they’ve released four albums with Columbia, including a holiday project and their latest, “Timeless.” It debuted at No. 1 on the “Billboard” Top Country Albums chart the week of its release last fall.

What a win for the guys who came together in their collegiate years in Minnesota, covering every song imaginable from Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” to the gospel standard “How Great Thou Art,” and even the Meghan Trainor smash “All About That Bass.” Their YouTube views total over 208 million.” Rare Country
