In its new video, the group gives new life to the country classic by using its voices in place of instruments. The Oak Ridge Boys join in on the fun and sing alongside the group as they trade verses throughout the track. Their cover of “Elvira” will be featured on Home Free’s upcoming second album, Country Evolution.
“This is a pivotal year for Home Free,” bass singer Tim Foust said in a statement, reportedly. “We’re coming into Country Evolution fresh on the heels of our Grand Ole Opry debut. We’ve gotten to collaborate with music icons such as the Oak Ridge Boys and Charlie Daniels. We’re excited to say the least.”
During its debut in July, the A cappella group received a wave of positive feedback from country fans. “We were overwhelmed by the crowd’s response during our debut at the Grand Ole Opry,” Foust recalls. “We were just honored to be among country royalty … We never imagined we would receive multiple standing ovations and get invited back on the spot!”
Home Free’s Country Evolution is set for release Sept. 18. The group will also appear on Kenny Rogers‘ new holiday album, Once Again It’s Christmas, due out Sept. 25.
