All-vocal group Home Free embraces their country roots in the brand new music video for their cover of the John Denver hit, “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

In the nearly four-minute clip, filmed just south of Nashville, vocalists Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist, Adam Rupp, Tim Foust, and Adam Chance, channel the nostalgic song lyrics of the John Denver classic, while walking along a dirt road that leads through breathtaking landscape views of mountains and trees.

“Take Me Home, Country Roads,” released in 1971, has been covered numerous times by various artists. Home Free certainly turns out a moving rendition all their own with their mesmerizing signature vocal blend of harmonies. In fact, throughout the years, it’s been one of the acclaimed quintet’s most requested cover songs to date.

“We’ve been perfecting the arrangement of this song for years,” Chance told Country Now. “So it feels amazing to finally have it out for our fans to listen to. They seem to be loving it as much as we do! We can’t wait to perform it live for them — and hopefully have them sing along with us!”

Home Free’s version of “Take Me Home, Country Roads” is set to appear on their highly anticipated fifth studio album, Dive Bar Saints. The offering is one of two cover tracks to be featured on the project, which is expected to be released later this summer.

Along with their two cover songs, the group recently dropped a handful of original tunes that will appear on the 12-song collection, including the title track as well as “Remember This,” “Catch Me If You Can” and “Dreamer.” Home Free will take their new music on the road this fall when they launch their massive Dive Bar Saints World Tour, which will visit the U.S. as well as 14 other countries.
