Acapella group Home Free formed in 2000 with teenage friends and brothers as a fun hobby, but it ended up growing into much more than that: a show group. The group toured the US, doing around 200 shows a year, until they went on the 2013 season of NBC's The Sing-Off. Home Free won the season, performing an acapella arrangement of "I Want Crazy" by Hunter Hayes, and received $100,000 and a Sony recording contract. In February of 2014, their first album under their Sony contract was released. Crazy Life reached No. 8 on the US Country charts and No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 200. They have released four more albums since then - three of which made it into the Top 10 on the US Country charts and all of which made it into the Top 100 on the Billboard Hot 200 charts.
Home Free: Beyond Rockapella
When the guys who founded Home Free first started out, they just wanted to be part of a group that sounded like the famous acapella group Rockapella. They enjoyed performing at local events and being able to make music together. They never dreamed it would end up becoming a future career for them. As they changed the lineup and grew together, they found their own unique voice and sound and gained popularity. While they were doing pretty well on their own, their win on The Song-Off catapulted them into the international spotlight, allowing them to gain more of a following in the US as well as fans throughout the world. They went from doing small shows in the US to headlining their own world tour and having their albums make it onto the charts. Undoubtedly, they have surpassed their goal to just be a group that sounded like Rockapella.
