NASHVILLE, TN (May 5, 2017) – Currently in Europe for music festivals in Austria, Denmark, The Netherlands and Spain, Columbia Records’ all-vocal country sensation Home Free unveiled their cover video for Zac Brown Band’s “My Old Man” today (5/5). Directed by Jimmy Bates, the family scenes were shot at a farm in Oregon, meanwhile the band filmed their segments at a studio in Minnesota during downtime in March. Home Free’s fresh take on the first single from Zac Brown's forthcoming album, Welcome Home.

“If you've followed us for any amount of time, you'll know that we love all things Zac Brown,” shares Home Free’s tenor Rob Lundquist. “All of our fathers have played huge roles in our lives, so when you couple that into a song as powerful as Zac did, it became a no-brainer for us to take a crack at this song."

Bass Timothy Foust adds about the video, “Its a beautiful story. We hope our fans are as touched by this song as we were."

Garnering international acclaim, the group just surpassed a whopping 150 million views on YouTube thanks to fan-favorites “Ring of Fire,” “How Great Thou Art,” “Elvira” and “God Bless The USA.”

Before launching their European stretch, Home Free wrapped up the fourth North American run of their must-see tour in South Portland, ME, on April 30.  The six-week tour sold more than 30,000 tickets throughout North America.

NJ Arts raves, “Each voice transforms the song, creating pure ear candy for the audience to wave their arms along to, creating an irresistible ‘feel-good’ groove.” Scene (Green Bay / De Pere, WI) adds, “Home Free wows with their high-energy show and quick-witted humor; meshing Nashville standards with pop hits, all with a dip in country flavor.” This summer, fans can catch the band at CMA Music Festival in Nashville, TN, on June 11, in addition to select tour dates throughout the U.S. Stay tuned for news on new music coming soon!
