The all-male country group of Minnesota natives — Chris Rupp, Tim Foust, Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist and Adam Rupp — are a tight-knit bunch that have gotten even closer by performing in concerts across the country. Their years of performance experience add to their refreshing country sound.   As an a cappella ensemble, Home Free performs without any instruments, only their voices. Adam Rupp is an award-winning vocal percussionist, Austin Brown and Rob Lundquist are tenors, Chris Rupp is a baritone and Tim Foust provides the bass which The Sing-Off's host Nick Lachey called a "seismic event."

On The Sing-Off, Home Free matched its vocal talent and polished stage presence with precise arrangements and high-energy vocals that brought the audience and the judges to their feet night after night.  The a cappella quintet regularly reworked classic and modern numbers like Tom Cochrane's "Life is a Highway," and Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman," giving the songs their own distinctive country twang.  Throughout the show Home Free showed their flexibility in both style and technique.
