Nashville, TN (August 28, 2015) – Columbia Records’ country quintet Home Free
is set to make a splash with the world premiere of their new track and
music video, “Fishin’ in the Dark / Down in the Boondocks,” exclusively
on USAToday.com today (8/28).  The mashup combines Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s classic #1 hit “Fishin’ in the Dark” with Platinum-selling country group Little Big Town’s contemporary “Boondocks.” The song is featured on Home Free’s third studio album, COUNTRY EVOLUTION, due out on September 18. 

we started brainstorming about what songs evoke the spirit we want to
convey on our new album, we thought, what are some of country’s biggest
hits? Why not ‘Fishin’ In The Dark’ with something more recent? Little
Big Town’s ‘Boondocks’! You wouldn’t think the styles would really mesh,
but they do,” said the band’s high tenor, Austin Brown. “We messed
around with them for a few weeks and they’re great together. The video
is a blast too! We can’t wait for everyone to check it out!” 

by FifGen Film’s Reilly Zamber, McKenzie Zamber and Jimmy Bates, the
music video splices both thematic and vintage-looking graphics creating a
visually exciting pairing of the two hits. For Home Free it is
important to reach out and interact with their fans through music

the coming months, the band will embark on the 2015 DON’T IT FEEL GOOD
Tour and the just-announced HOME FREE FOR THE HOLIDAYS Tour. Kicking off
December 2 in Duluth, MN, Home Free will bring fan favorites and
holiday jingles from FULL OF CHEER to 15-plus cities
nationwide. Tickets will be available for pre-sale for members of Home
Free’s Patreon community on September 8 and available to the general
public September 11.  

Additionally, they join country icon Kenny Rogers on his first Christmas album in 17 years, ONCE AGAIN IT’S CHRISTMAS, performing “Children, Go Where I Send Thee” (Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville, 9/25).

country style into the national spotlight.
