Home Free recently released the brand new video for their current single “Why Not.” The upbeat song, which encourages listeners to take a leap of faith for a shot at love, can be found on the all-vocal country group’s 2019 album, Dive Bar Saints.

Directed by The Bolo Brothers, and filmed mostly inside Nashville’s new Chopper tiki bar, the music video for “Why Not” features a young girl and guy separately getting ready for a night out on the town with friends. As the story unfolds, the two strangers end up crossing paths at the same venue, where they lock eyes and work up enough courage to say hello.

Split screens of the five-piece all-vocal group singing the flirty song lyrics are also strategically placed throughout the clip. By the end scene, the two main characters are shown gazing at city lights from the venue’s balcony, while wrapped up in each other’s arms.

“When it came to making the video, the Bolo Brothers absolutely nailed it,” Home Free’s Austin Brown told Country Now of the music video for the song, written by Jeffrey Joseph East and Patrick Dodge. “The storyline in the song is played out perfectly on-screen, and I really love that you’re left wondering what happened next in the couple’s love story. Honestly, I like to think they’re out there, somewhere, married with kids and a dog – because Why Not?”

Home Free, comprised of Brown, Adam Rupp, Adam Chance, Rob Lundquist, and Tim Foust, is currently on the road playing shows, as part of their highly successful Dive Bar Saints World Tour. The massive trek, which hits 16 different countries, and includes over 100 shows, is expected to wrap in October.
