Home Free Releases ‘What We Need is Love’ Video, Announces Ryman Show

Friday, November 6 was a big day for Home Free! On that day, the five-man group released their long-awaited Warmest Winter Christmas album, as well as video for their song, “What We Need is Love” from the record. In addition, after spending most of 2020 at home, Home Free announced they will also perform a live show, at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium.

“WE’RE PERFORMING AT THE RYMAN THIS DECEMBER!” Home Free revealed on social media. “On December 21st we’ll be playing [the Ryman] in front of a safe and socially-distanced, limited capacity audience. We can’t wait to play a live show for y’all again. It’s the only performance scheduled for the rest of the year!”

“What We Need is Love” was written by Home Free’s own Tim Foust, along with Ernie Halter. The song, which says in part, “I don’t care what you believe / You can always count on me / There’s wonder in the stars above/ But down here what we need is love,” is a favorite of the five-man group.

“‘What We Nee is Love’ is near and dear to us, so please, sit back, listen with an open heart and enjoy the official music video on YouTube.”


Warmest Winter includes guest vocals by Rachel Wammack, Alabama and Striking Matches. Those artists also appear on their upcoming holiday special, which will also include Jeffrey East and the Oak Ridge Boys. More details have yet to be announced.

Although Home Free didn’t get to tour this year, they are still looking forward to time with their loved ones, where they can hopefully focus on being together.

“No question, each of our favorite parts about Christmas is being able to spend time with our families,” Rob Lundquist told Everything Nash. “Aside from this crazy year, we are typically touring non-stop, and Christmas is a time that we take off a substantial amount to stop and refresh and celebrate with our loved ones. Now that I’m a dad, Christmas has become my favorite time of year, just getting to see the excitement through the eyes of my kids.”
