HOME FREE NAMED CHAMPS IN NBC’S ‘THE SING-OFF’

Minnesota-Based All-Male a Capella Group Wins Competitive Fourth Season

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Dec. 23, 2013 — Home Free were declared the season four winners Monday night of NBC’s a capella musical competition series “The Sing-Off.”

The all-male country group of Minnesota natives — Chris Rupp, Tim Foust, Austin Brown, Rob Lunquist and Adam Rupp — are a tight-knit bunch that have gotten even closer by performing in concerts across the country.

Home Free recently signed a deal with Columbia Records. Their debut album will be called “Crazy Life” and available digitally Jan. 14 and elsewhere Feb. 18. The album can pre-ordered starting Dec. 24 at http://smarturl.it/homefree

“Crazy Life” features a collection of original music as well as a selection of cover songs the group performed on the show, including, “Ring of Fire” (Johnny Cash) and a Hunter Hayes medley featuring “I Want Crazy” from Monday’s finale. Home Free will join a handful of finalists for “The Sing-Off Live Tour!” that kicks off a 32-night run on Feb. 19 in Verona, N.Y.

Heading into the finale, “The Sing-Off” is averaging a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.2 million viewers overall, for a gain versus the prior cycle of 13% in 18-49 (1.8 vs. 1.6) and 39% in total viewers (6.2 million vs. 4.5 million), according to “live plus same day” data from Nielsen Media Research.  In its various time slots, “The Sing-Off” has improved NBC’s time-period performance versus one year ago by an average of 20% in 18-49 rating (1.8 vs. 1.5) and 18% in total viewers (6.2 million vs. 5.3 million).

Judges for “The Sing-Off” are Jewel, Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman. Nick Lachey serves as host.

“The Sing-Off” is produced by One Three Media (a Hearst/Mark Burnett company) along with Outlaw Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television.
