Acapella country band 'Home Free' stuns fans with 'My Church' performance
An a cappella group releases a stunning country rendition of 'My Church'
'Home Free' was formed in 2000 by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp and included Matt Atwood, Darren Scruggs, and Dan Lemke. These young men from Mankato, Minnesota, met in their teens and started singing together.
At first, the group was a hobby, but as their popularity grew, they started playing in bars and parties. In 2013, 'Home Free' entered and won NBC's Sing-Off. The prize was $100.000 and a recording contract with Sony, reported Country Rebel.
Since then 'Home Free' have presented their fans with their renditions of country and pop hits, such as Johnny Cash‘s “Ring of Fire” or Lee Greenwood‘s “God Bless The USA.”
'Home Free' has recently released their version of one of the greatest hits in country music: Maren Morris‘, “My Church.” Morris recorded the debut single in 2016 and became one of country music’s young stars.
The original version has a gospel vibe, but 'Home Free' decided to emphasize the gospel sound, perfect for their rich harmonics.
The group ended the song with a thrilling final chorus, and 'Home Free's original arrangement made the song very much their own.
The group shot a video for 'My Church' and it became an overnight sensation, taking them up into the charts yet again.
Since 2014 'Home Free' launched several records starting with Crazy Life, with Columbia Records, Country Evolution, and Full of Cheer for Sony. The group's fresh sound and original approach to country make them a growing sensation in country music.
