After taking the CMA Awards red carpet by storm, Country music’s top a cappella sensation HOME FREE is back with a new cover video for their take on Cam’s “Mayday.”
“’Mayday’ is such a well-written song to begin with, but there are so many interesting musical elements on the original that it gave each of us room to have some fun and put our individual twists on it,” says bassist Tim Foust, who exercises his full five-octave range on the track, taking high lead.

“Mayday” is featured on the group’s latest album TIMELESS, their fourth Top 10 entry on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. They originally recorded the song in 2016, but it quickly made the cut when selecting tracks for the then-planned 2017 release. The accompanying music video was filmed at The Machine Shop, a renovated turn-of-the-century mill in Minneapolis.
Home Free caught up with Cam, tune’s original composer on the CMA Awards red carpet during a fun interview with Taste of Country (watch here). They also chatted with Rolling Stone Country, The Morning Breath, and many more.
The quintet is set to celebrate the holiday season from coast to coast on their A COUNTRY CHRISTMAS Tour kicking off November 29 in Rochester, MN. After ringing in the new year with a special NYE performance in Morton, MN, they will continue their TIMELESS Tour into 2018, visiting more than 30 cities across the country including two-night stints in Dallas, TX and Knoxville, TN, plus a much-anticipated stop at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on April 6. Tickets for all dates are on sale now and selling fast.
