It’s fitting that Home Free will have their album release show at the Grand Ole Opry, since it was that stage that marked their first live performance since the pandemic, when they performed in May.
“It was a mixture of joy and maybe a touch of anxiety,” Foust tells Everything Nash, speaking of the unforgettable show. “There was no easing back into this performance thing. It went from not performing for a year and a half to performing on the most sacred stage and country music. Oh, and now there are cameras that broadcast to live television. So it was a little bit like, ‘All right, let’s hope we remember how to do this thing.'”
Home Free recently praised their loyal fans, dubbed the Home Fries, for their overwhelming support over the years.
“It’s hard to be objective about it, because that’s all we know, but it certainly seems like it’s a different level of engaged, and devoted, for sure,” Tim Foust tells Everything Nash.
“The Home Fries do the exact same thing that my immediate family does,” adds Austin Brown. “My mom is always telling everybody and anybody. My dad sits down at a restaurant, any restaurant he goes to, and he’s like, ‘This is my son.’ And then he plays it, and holds the phone up for them. It feels like the Home Fries are just extensions of our family.”
Land of the Free is a ten-track record of patriotic tunes, inspired by the Home Free members’ love of their country.
“Based merely on the human condition, our differences are far outweighed by our common ground,” Foust previously said, when announcing the project. “We hope this album serves as a reminder of the unity to be found in our shared humanity.”
Home Free will also resume their Dive Bar Saints Tour later this year. Keep track of updates, and pre-order Land of the Free, at HomeFreeMusic.com.
