Home Free’s Adam Chance is officially engaged. He popped the question to his girlfriend, Samantha “Sami” Matarante, in March, and the clip is featured in the group’s music video for their cover of Jason Isbell’s “Cover Me Up.”
The majority of the music video shows Chance singing the song in front of a beautiful sunset while the other members of the a cappella group appear on the side of the screen to provide harmony. These clips alternate with footage of a couple who eventually gets engaged in a romantic setting at the end of the video.
The video then shows text reading, “On March 17th 2020 Chance made the biggest decision of his life. After the European Tour was cancelled due to the pandemic and his plan to propose to Sami seemingly along with it, he took it in stride and did it anyway…. At home. In their PJs.”
A clip of Chance down on one knee proposing to his girlfriend in their kitchen is then shown followed by text that reads, “She said yes.”
Chance explained to People that he had originally planned to propose in Paris while on their Dive Bar Saints World Tour, but he had to think on his feet when that plan got cancelled due to COVID-19.
“I had carried the ring around the entire tour in preparation for that day,” he says. “But on March 12, we had to suddenly cancel the rest of our tour and head home due to the pandemic. So, there I was, sitting at home, unsure of when or where I’d even have an opportunity to make it happen, considering we were stuck inside our home for the foreseeable future.”
“March 17 was our two-year anniversary, so I just decided to go for it,” he adds. “We were wearing onesies, and she thought we were about to record something goofy for Instagram — but I got down on one knee instead. I couldn’t wait. It was the best decision I’ve ever made.”
