Home Free Reaches $75,000 Fundraising Goal for Holiday Special in 9 Hours

Talk about loyal fans. Only nine hours after Home Free launched their crowd-funding campaign, via IndieGogo, to raise $75,000 for a Warmest Winter holiday special, the five-man group reached their goal, later exceeding it by more than $14,000!

“CANNOT BELIEVE IT,” the group tweeted. “9 hours. Y’all are amazing. We are OVERHWHELMED by the support. Working on some words for you all tonight. But for now we’ll just say two: Thank You.”

Home Free previously explained that the reason for the crowd-funding was to give fans an experience they would never forget, which is more important than ever since the group was forced to postpone their Dive Bar Saints World Tour until 2021, because of COVID-19.

“We have never attempted anything like this, despite getting so many requests from our fans over the years. Now we have the time to finally do so, but we need your help to make it happen,” Home Free explained on the Indiegogo page. “We are planning to make this Special and a bunch of exclusive content, behind-the-scenes footage, and family-fun holiday spirit for you all. It will be filled with comedy, guests, never-before-seen performances, interviews and more. We have already begun organizing all of the awesome ideas that we want to bring to life.”

No word yet when the special will air. Currently, Home Free has raised more than $89,000.

“These kind of specials are very expensive to produce, factoring in lighting, sound, venue and crew expenses plus the actual recording, editing, and licensing of music,” Home Free previously shared. “We need to raise $75,000 to ensure that the production of this video shoot happens.”

Home Free’s Warmest Winter Christmas album, which includes guest vocals by Alabama, Rachel Wammack and Striking Matches, will be released on November 6. It is currently available for pre-order at HomeFreeMusic.com.
