Bandâ€™s Newcomer Adam Chance Makes His Grand Ole Opry Debut
Release Brand New Cover Video Of Michael Rayâ€™s #1 Smash â€œThink a Little Lessâ€
Columbia Recordsâ€™ all-vocal country sensation HOME FREE teamed up with THE OAK RIDGE BOYS for a first ever ovation-worthy Home Free-Oak Ridge Boys surprise performance of the legendary groupâ€™s iconic hit â€œElviraâ€ Tuesday (4/11).
Playing back-to-back performances among a star-studded night that included Montgomery Gentry, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and another surprise performer, Blake Shelton, it was the first time Home Free newcomer Adam Chance stepped onto the famed circle.
“I remember being a kid at home on Saturday nights with my family listening to the Opry broadcast on the radio down in lower Alabama,â€ Chance shares. â€œStanding onstage with Home Free, the Oaks, and so many other country legends is absolutely a dream come true. I can’t wait for that next invitation back to the Opry!” Chanceâ€™s milestone marked his one-year anniversary of joining Home Free.
And the quintetâ€™s excitement continued, as they were thrilled to meet Urban â€“ after recently putting their harmony-rich, Motown spin on his critically acclaimed chart-topper â€œBlue Ainâ€™t Your Color.â€ Directed by Jimmy Bates, the stylish cover features smooth doo-wop-inspired moves created by long-time collaborator and choreographer Kristin Denehy and has quickly surpassed 1 million views within only a week of its release.
With over 145 million YouTube views under their belt, Home Free wants their devoted fans to â€œThink a Little Lessâ€ with their latest cover video, as theyâ€™re now taking on Michael Rayâ€™s sexy #1 groove. Perfectly capturing Chanceâ€™s sultry vocals, the lively footage was shot during tour rehearsals at their typical Minneapolis-based haunts such as the Mall of America, SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium, and Elko-New Marketâ€™s Firehouse Grill.
Since being crowned NBCâ€™s The Sing-Off victors, Home Free has made their mark on the music scene selling more than 200,000 copies combined of their popular albums, embarking on four major national tours and amassing over 145 million YouTube views. The release of their third studio album, COUNTRY EVOLUTION, has elevated the band â€œfrom auxiliary entertainment to headlining attractionâ€ (Times Leader) and hit No. 4 on Billboardâ€™s Country Albums chart. Produced by Darren Rust, the deluxe version includes five originals and nine new renditions of hit songs that showcase the bandâ€™s extraordinary talents, tight harmonies and intelligent arrangements that are uniquely their own. Home Freeâ€™s breakout debut album CRAZY LIFE (2014) hit No. 1 on iTunes Country chart and No. 4 overall. In 2016, the release of FULL OF (EVEN MORE) CHEER, an expanded version of their popular holiday album, FULL OF CHEER, debuted at #2 on Billboardâ€™s Country Albumâ€™s chart. Founded in 2000 during collegiate years, the five-man band from Minnesota has been perfecting their live show for nearly a decade performing together for packed crowds at major fairs, colleges and theatres. Their experiences on the road helped carry them to The Sing-Off victory, build a loyal fan base and bring their homegrown country style into the national spotlight.
