Home Free to Headline Cheez-It™ 355 at The Glen Prerace Ceremonies
NBC’s “The Sing-Off” Champions, Home Free Vocal Band, set to sing the National Anthem Sunday, August 10th
The five member group, hailing from Minnesota, spent nearly a decade performing together and perfecting their live show at state and local fairs, college campuses, and various other venues before capturing the national spot light on Season 4 of NBC’s The Sing Off.
WATKINS GLEN, NY – Country a cappella sensation and Season 4 Champions of NBC’s “The Sing-Off”, Home Free, will perform the National Anthem at Watkins Glen International during the Cheez-It™ 355 at The Glen, Sunday, August 10.
Home Free will join in the pre-race ceremonies, which will be held on the Start/Finish line along the front stretch. The race, anthem and command is set to air live on ESPN, and will broadcast over the track PA system, on the MRN Sprint Vision screens located around the track, and on the many closed-circuit televisions located throughout the multiple hospitality areas around the facility.
Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free also consists of Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist, and Tim Foust. The five member group, hailing from Minnesota, spent nearly a decade performing together and perfecting their live show at state and local fairs, college campuses, and various other venues before capturing national spot light on Season 4 of NBC’s The Sing-Off. With a musical style unique to the country world, the group’s performance consists of only five voices creating a sound that meshes Nashville standards with country-dipped pop hits.
After winning season 4 of NBC’s The Sing-Off, the group took their high-energy show on the road as a part of the Sing-Off Tour Live!, this past spring. Most recently the group performed on August 3rd at the Boots and Hearts Festival in Ontario, Canada. Home Free will begin a nationwide tour this fall in support of Crazy Life, their debut release on Columbia Records available now on all DSPs and major retailers.
