For the first time in their wildly successful career, all-vocal Country entertainers HOME FREE are releasing an album chock-full of original music titled DIVE BAR SAINTS on July 26. Available for preorder next Friday (5/17), the 12-track project serves up 10 original songs with band members AUSTIN BROWN (high tenor) and TIM FOUST (bass) among writing credits.
“We’ve been waiting for a special time to release an album like DIVE BAR SAINTS," shares Foust. “With a couple of us being able to write on it and release it on our own label – we’re so proud of this record.“
Tenor Rob Lundquist adds, “We can’t wait to take this music out on the road and see our Home Fries all over the world this year.”
Penned by tunesmiths Brandon Chase, Arlis Albritton, and Justin Morgan, the grooving title track honors a neon-lit late-night refuge and is available immediately upon preorder, in addition to Foust’s original “Remember This.” Among the dynamic release, Home Free also includes a stirring take of “Go Rest High on That Mountain” (Vince Gill) and a spiritual rendition of “Take Me Home, Country Roads” (John Denver). Succeeding TIMELESS (2017) – #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart – this album marks the acclaimed quintet’s debut release off their independent label, Home Free Records, and under The Orchard for distribution.
