I’ve been hearing these songs on AOL Radio the last couple weeks and I didn’t know what to make of them. Finally I looked into things and realized the songs were by new country band, Home Free. After a little more digging I realized these guys were the stars of the show The Sing Off. I had no idea. I feel like my head has been in the sand.
Anyway, these guys have a new album out with a few covers and a few originals. Here is my favorite original, Any Way The Wind Blows.
Any Way The Wind Blows – Home Free
I think the song is about life and love. You can definitely feel right away that it’s an upbeat song and that the narrator feels like he’s on top of the world. From what I can hear in the lyrics it’s about the guy promising to do all the things that will make the girl happy. He wants to be with her forever and give her the things she deserves no matter where that takes them.
The obvious story with these guys is that they’re a vocal group. They do all the background sounds with their vocals. I’ve always thought these groups were really cool and really talented. It probably goes back to those Folgers coffee commercials in the ’90s with the Rockapella. Those guys were awesome. Maybe this is the country version although I guess we’ve had the Oak Ridge Boys and the Statler Brothers in the past.
And now we have Home Free and they sound great.
