HOME FREE PREMIERES DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR? VIDEO EXCLUSIVELY ON THEBOOT.COM FRIDAY (12/4), SURPASSES 250, 000 YOUTUBE VIEWS
Columbia Records’ country sensation Home Free debuted their new music video for the Christmas favorite “Do You Hear What I Hear?” exclusively on TheBoot.com last Friday (12/4). The harmony-rich arrangement of the holiday classic is featured on their Christmas release, FULL OF CHEER. Fans can hear the vocal band perform the song live on their 17-city HOME FREE FOR THE HOLIDAYS Tour running through December 20. In January, they will make their European debut with an appearance at the star-studded annual LONDON A CAPPELLA FESTIVAL and additional dates in England, Scotland and Ireland.
Directed by FifGen Films’ Reilly Zamber, McKenzie Zamber and Jimmy Bates, the video was filmed at night in the blistering cold at a stunning ice castle in Eden Prairie, MN. “We’re very excited to kick off the Christmas season with this tune, ” said Home Free’s vocal percussion/beat boxer Adam Rupp. “The arrangement was really fun for us to put together and I’m particularly proud to share it. I hope that it resonates with lovers of all kinds of music.”
Home Free’s devoted fans have propelled their total YouTube views to over 52 million. In just two weeks, the music video for Kenny Rogers’ collaboration with Home Free, “Children, Go Where I Send Thee”, is on the cusp of 1 million YouTube views while the fan-favorite, Home Free’s rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire, ” has soared to 11 million views.
After Home Free's European debut, they will return to the States and launch a spring tour nationwide.

About Home Free
Since being crowned NBC’s “The Sing-Off” victors, Home Free has made their mark on the music scene selling more than 150, 000 copies combined of their popular albums, CRAZY LIFE and FULL OF CHEER, embarking on two major national tours and amassing over 52 million YouTube views. The five-man band from Minnesota, comprised of Austin Brown (high tenor), Tim Foust (bass), Rob Lundquist (tenor), Adam Rupp (vocal percussion/beat boxer) and Chris Rupp (baritone), dropped their debut album CRAZY LIFE in 2014, which hit No. 1 on iTunes Country chart and No. 4 overall. 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 longtime collaborator 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. Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years, Home Free 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.
