Home Free Takes Us to ‘Heaven’ in New Cover Video
The quintet takes an understated approach for the video, singing the tune inside of a rustic countryside church adorned with decorative lights, adding even more of a romantic atmosphere to the dreamy song. Rob Lundquist takes lead with his tenor vocal range, with his fellow singers providing sweet background harmonies on the chorus as they beautifully sing, “Everybody’s talking about heaven like they just can’t wait to go / saying how it’s gonna be so good, so beautiful.”
Adam Rupp impressively acts as the song’s instrumentation using only his voice, while Tim Foust holds down the fort with his deep bass.
Penned by Shy Carter, Matthew McGinn and Lindsay Rimes, “Heaven” is quickly becoming one of Brown’s signature hits, topping the Billboard Country Airplay chart in 2018. It follows his first No. 1 hit, “What Ifs,” featuring Lauren Alaina.
“Heaven” is the most recent adaptation in a long list of country covers by Home Free, with the a capella group delivering solid renditions of famous hits like the Oak Ridge Boys’ “Elvira,” “Hillbilly Bone” by Blake Shelton, Maren Morris’ breakout track, “My Church” and many more. The Sing-Off winners released their latest album, Timeless, in 2017 that includes covers of “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” “Life is a Highway” and “Man of Constant Sorrow.”
“I feel like this album has evolved a lot. It was nice to take some more songs with a little more depth, little grittier. It’s definitely different from [previous] albums,” Lundquist said to Sounds Like Nashville about the project.
They’ll perform as part of the 2018 CMA Music Festival on June 10 on the Riverfront stage in downtown Nashville.
