Home Free Drop Beachy Cover of Garth Brooks’ ‘Friends in Low Places’ [Watch]
The quintet released a new video with their version of the classic tune, which begins in a more subdued location inside an apartment. The style matches the atmosphere as the guys lay back on a couch and bass Tim Foust launches into the familiar melody, floating over a sea of perfectly harmonized tones.
Soon enough, the beat picks up and the song transforms into a sort of reggae-flavored beachy singalong, bringing listeners straight to the heart of what summertime is all about. The guys appear in scenes lounging in beach chairs, hanging out at the pool, snorkeling and drinking a variety of beverages as they enjoy everything vacation has to offer. Their vocals are finely tuned and blend seamlessly to create a wall of sound it’s hard to believe lacks any instruments. Both country fans and a capella fans alike are sure to enjoy this laid-back version of a country staple.
The new Home Free video comes just after the news that founding member Chris Rupp will be leaving the group after their show May 8, 2016 in Minnesota. In a separate video announcing the departure, Rupp says he’s going to focus on other creative endeavors he’s passionate about, and the members are careful to note they support him 100 percent. Home Free will continue with the other four members plus the addition of Adam Chance, who will replace Rupp.
Home Free won NBC’s a capella competition The Sing-Off in 2013 and have since sold more than 150,000 albums and racked up more than 69 million views on YouTube. They are currently on their Don’t It Feel Good Tour, which continues through May. Their latest record Country Evolution is available now.
