Home Free Cover ‘God Bless the USA’ Ahead of Fourth of July Holiday [WATCH]
Country a cappella group Home Free are honoring the Independence Day holiday and our nation's veterans with a beautiful rendition of Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA." The group -- comprised of Adam Rupp, Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist, Tim Foust and Chris Rupp (who has since left the group and been replaced by Adam Chance) -- filmed the video performance at sunset in front of Mount Rushmore. You can't get much more patriotic than that!
"God Bless the USA" is a timeless and classic anthem, but Home Free bring it to an ethereal level with their smooth harmonies and the picturesque setting.
"We feel very blessed to be able to make music for a living, and we know it's only because we live in a country made great by the sacrifices of others," Foust tells Taste of Country, who premiered the clip. "This is our tribute to the brave men and women of the armed forces, past and presently serving."
Home Free's "God Bless the USA" video was produced, mixed and mastered by Darren Rust at Skyland Studios, and it concludes with a famous quote, penned by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War: “Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as best he can, the same cause.” During the clip, viewers are urged to give to Charlie Daniels' Journey Home Project, which assists not-for-profit causes that provide veterans with rehabilitation, reintegration and opportunities as they transition to civilian life.
Home Free recently wrapped up their 26-show Don't It Feel Good Tour, but they have several shows scheduled this summer through next spring. Fans can find more information on upcoming concerts on Home Free's official website.
