A cappella country music group and of our recent Swag Spotlight Features, Home Free, have released the music video for their soulful cover of “Man of Constant Sorrow.” Originally performed by The Soggy Bottom Boys and Dan Tyminski for the 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Home Free made this rendition true to their signature sound.
The quintet’s mutual love for O Brother, Where Art Thou? made every decision for this video quite simple. From the location to their wardrobe choices, Home Free paid homage to their favored film almost entirely.
Filmed at Oak Hollow Farm in Fairhope, AL, the group wanted to monumentalize the song’s
rich southern history. In a recent interview with Billboard, the band’s baritone Adam Chance shared, “We’ve taken this song all around the world this past year on tour. It was inspiring to be able to bring it back home to Alabama, and really dig deep into the heart of it for our video.”
The group’s tenor, Rob Lundquist added, “I’ve lost count how many times I’ve seen O Brother, Where Art Thou? It definitely put this classic tune on the map for a lot of people, and we sure hope we’ve honored it!”
The video begins with shots of the farm’s nature views before panning to the five vocalists on a dirt road under a trail of trees. All throughout, visuals of each member posted at different locations of Oak Hollow exude the authentic southern vibe they were going for.
Featured on their 2017 album, Timeless, “Man of Constant Sorrow” is the last of the album cycle’s concept videos.
Home Free will wrap up their ‘Timeless World Tour’ early next month, right before they head out on their ‘A Country Christmas Tour’ which will begin on November 24th at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, NJ.
