Another Timeless album from Home Free
If you follow me on any of my socials, you know I have been fangirling over one particular country group since I found them earlier this year. Yes that’s right, the chick covered in tatts and piercings listens to country music *gasp*. What makes this group super special though is that they don’t play instruments. That’s right, those amazing beats and that bass you hear when you listen to Home Free come straight from the guys. Home Free is a country a cappella group based out of Minnesota, with members hailing from their home states of Texas, Alabama, and Georgia.
I first stumbled upon Home Free back in February while I was listening to Maren Morris’s hit track “My Church” while doing dishes. Next thing I know I hear the same lyrics, but with distinctive male voices. Needless to say, the dishes went unfinished as I spent the rest of the day listening to Home Free and doing what any fangirl would do.
Timeless starts off with a studio rendition of “Life is a Highway” originally performed by Rascal Flatts. This track has been highly anticipated since the group first performed it on The Sing Off in 2013. We get a small hint of beat boxer Adam Rupp’s mad skills in the first few seconds of the track, along with tenor Rob Lundquist. The second track of the album titled “It Looks Good.” Written by bassist Tim Foust, he is able to show off his incredible vocal range before High tenor Austin Brown joins in. This track is incredible adorable, especially when the couple in question hit the dance floor and someone comments “I hope I don’t mess up your shoes.”
If you have listened to the radio anytime this summer you are familiar with Ed Sheeran and his latest album Divide. The guys instantly fell in love with one track in particular and decided to bring their own vibe to the hit. Home Free’s newest member Adam Chance takes the first lead for “Castle on The Hill.” This is the second time Chance has had a major part in a track that didn’t consist of backing vocals. The first being the Michael Ray cover of “Think a Little Less” which the guys covered in early April. Around two minutes and forty five seconds into the track, High Tenor Austin Brown shows us a quick sneak peek of just how high his voice can go.
The guys in Home Free have covered numerous tracks that fall well out of the genre of country, but they always seem to nail it. A perfect example of this would be the sixth track of Timeless. “In The Blood” originally performed by John Mayer. We received our second taste of Timeless when the music video for “In The Blood” was released on August 30th. Although the video has only been on Youtube for a little over three weeks it already has around 949,000 views! (Thanks Home Fries!)
The ninth track “I Can’t Outrun You” slows down a considerate amount as Chance once again shows off his smooth baritone voice. As you can guess by the title this song is a sadder one, but that doesn’t take away from the tight harmonies the guys once again pull off.
“Mayday” the twelfth track has been kept hidden from us until the Timeless release once again shows us that Brown has a range that most females can’t even hit. Toward the end of the track, Chance gets to show us that Foust isn’t the only one who can hit those low notes, which will literally give you chills.
