Home Free Takes On Blake Shelton’s “Hillbilly Bone” in High-Spirited New Video (Exclusive Premiere)


Home Free, the five-man a capella group from Minnesota—made up of Austin Brown (high tenor), Adam Chance (baritone), Tim Foust (bass), Rob Lundquist (tenor) and Adam Rupp (vocal percussion/beatboxer)—is sharing a spirited new video for their cover of Blake Shelton’s “Hillbilly Bone,” exclusively with One Country.

The boot-stomping video captures the high-energy spirit Home Free bring to their performances. Chance portrays a buttoned-up nerdy type from New York City—”I got a friend in New York City,” the song kicks off— unfamiliar with the country lifestyle. It doesn’t take long before he gets indoctrinated to the hillbilly ways by the rest of the group—joining them for a raucous campfire party.

Arranged by Home Free and producer Darren Rust, the country tune is a fan-favorite on tour. At their fans request, the new rendition of “Hillbilly Bone,” co-penned by Luke Laird and Craig Wisemen, will be featured on the group’s new album, Timeless, due out Sept. 22.

“This new album encompasses so many emotions with these classic songs. It’s about those universal timeless feelings and experiences, and we’re incredibly excited to share it with everyone,” says Austin Brown (high tenor).

Timeless, the band’s fourth album on Columbia records, is the follow up to Full of (Even More) Cheer and Country Evolution. You can pre-order the album HERE.

Originally recorded by Blake Shelton, featuring guest vocals by Trace Adkins, “Hillbilly Bone” reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart in 2010.
