Home Free covers Try Everything with perfection!
Good afternoon faithful followers. Today we don’t just have a new video to go over, but we have a new member of Home Free to throw into the discussion. This one is pure fun and uplifting! I just got back from seeing Home Free, twice, over the weekend, so that blog will be coming soon.
Let’s start with the song, Try Everything. Love the title and the song just reels you in and doesn’t let go. I heard it when I took my daughter to see the movie Zootopia, and I fell in love with it! Excellent decision to do this song. I haven’t stopped listening to it since I first saw the video. And yes, I support Home Free on Patreon, so I got to see it early. I just play it over and over again. Home Free adds their all too famous and notable magic to this incredible song! All that rich, gorgeous, meaty harmony that fills the room with energy and heart. Sometimes when I’m listening to this song, I close my eyes and let my ears take in every juicy note and beat and, when the song is done, I’m smiling from ear to ear. It’s a wonderful feeling. It may fall a little outside of the country genre, but Home Free really makes this song kick ass!
As you know, Chris Rupp has decided to leave Home Free for a solo career. To me Chris is Home Free, but all the guys are equally important to their success over the years. Chris, being one of the founding brothers, is the main face I associate with Home Free. The fans will miss him, more than we realize now, but at the same time we are excited for him. However, his adorable smile and smooth voice are missing from this video. It’s going to be difficult for some, but you really need to hear this, because Chance is going to give you this surprising sense of “Home Free is going to be just fine!”
So, I’m happily listening and watching as the video spins around a recording studio from a couple different views. The guys are their usual, love to watch them perform, selves. Chance seems to fit right in, harmonies rocking, Adam jamming (that man would be lost without arms), Rob and Austin sounding remarkable and making it look way too easy, and Tim and Chance filling it in with depth. Yeah, then all a sudden, Chance starts singing on his own. My heart skipped a beat and when I heard him I felt the smile break out, it was beautiful! Chance sounds, well, like he’s been doing this a while. Oh yeah, he has! It was perfect and I got the most satisfying and comforting feeling when I heard him sing. I knew Home Free made the choice to bring Adam Chance in for a reason, and he is completely convincing in his first video with Home Free. He won’t be officially initiated until he gets mobbed by Home Fries. Hehe, we don’t really mob, but it’s not our first rodeo, so we do give them a run for their money! (side note: how many times do you think Adam accidently, on purpose, smacked Tim and Rob while making this video?)
Brilliant! Great song, great singers, great video, great addition and great job! You really need to watch the video, if you haven’t already. You won’t be able to stop the smile and feel good when it’s over. And you’ll watch it again and again and probably again! The Oklahoma concerts were amazing and you’ll hear all about soon. Until, check out this Home Free video of Try Everything!
