Home Free is closing a musical chapter with “Remember My Name,” out now. The song, which name-checks Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Garth Brooks and more, is the final release from their So Long Dixie album, released last fall.
“WHAT. A. RUN.,” Home Free said on social media, when announcing that “Remember My Name” would be their last release from the record.
Home Free has a lengthy history of putting their own twist on classic songs, from all genres. But with So Long Dixie, the project, which followed their The Sounds of Lockdown album, was 14 original songs, a unique chapter for the all-vocal band.
“Downtime these past couple years combined with inspiration from touring again, got Tim [Foust] and Austin [Brown] writing,” Home Free said of So Long Dixie. “We all listened and had an idea. We thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do something different and uniquely ours. This collection of songs we feel not only tells great stories, but still holds true to our style you all know and love.”
Home Free is spending much of the next several months on the road. The talented singers will kick off their long-awaited European tour, which was cut short due to the pandemic, on September 13. Home Free will perform a total of 15 dates in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands, wrapping up with three shows in England.
“We’re taking our talents to Europe this summer to continue our Road Sweet Road tour abroad!” Home Free said when the tour was announced. “Our last Euro trip got cut short by something called COVID. You may have heard of it. But we are BEYOND THRILLED to return and finish what we started!!”
They will also embark on their Home Free For The Holidays Tour, which kicks off on November 29 in Raleigh, North Carolina. They will begin 2024 on the road — or rather, the sea — as well, when they perform as part of the 2024 Country Music Cruise, along with an impressive list of artists that includes Tracy Lawrence, Clint Black, Neal McCoy, Joe Nichols, Shenandoah, Darryl Worley, Billy Dean and more.
“It is going to be a very unique experience that is unlike any other thing that you would ever experience, if you came to see us at a show on land or at a concert,” Adam Rupp told Everything Nash. “Because it’s gonna be multiple events that are going to be occurring while on the ship, where you get to experience stuff with us in different ways instead of just the show.
“The show’s gonna be great, of course, but there’s an intimacy that is unlike anything else that you would experience on land or at a concert venue, because obviously, we’re all together on the ship … You’ll see us just walking around. We’ll be passing by each other from time to time, and we’ll be out and about. So you’ll be able to interact in a different way.”
