Well-known for their loyal online following, Columbia Records’ Home Free reached a new career milestone this week with crossing the impressive 100 million YouTube views mark. Fueled by fan-favorites “Ring of Fire,” “Angels We Have Heard On High,” “All About That Bass,” the all-vocal group continues to skyrocket with their most recent video “How Great Thou Art,” already tallying over 3.6 million YouTube views in one week.
Their rendition of “How Great Thou Art” is featured on the Christmas album FULL OF (EVEN MORE) CHEER releasing November 11 and is available now for pre-order. Fans can get their hands on physical albums exclusively at Walmart with autographed copies ready now for pre-order at Walmart.com.
The celebrations continued as Home Free performed the national anthem at the Minnesota Vikings’ “Salute to Service” game (vs. Detroit Lions) honoring military members yesterday (11/6) before launching their nearly sold-out, 30-city A COUNTRY CHRISTMAS Tour in Green Bay, WI this Wednesday (11/9).
Since being crowned NBC’s “The Sing-Off” victors, Home Free has made their mark on the music scene selling more than 250,000 copies combined of their popular albums, CRAZY LIFE and FULL OF CHEER, embarking on four major national tours and amassing over 100 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 the Billboard 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. 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.
FULL OF (EVEN MORE) CHEER is available for pre-order here.
