Home Free Cover Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’ A Cappella Style [VIDEO]
Home Free (Adam and Chris Rupp, Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist and Tim Foust) explain to PopCrush that covering Trainor’s hit was something that they each really wanted to do the moment they heard it. “It’s a refreshing message that is a welcome shift to most of the shallow and repetitive motifs currently filling the airways,” the band explains.
“Meghan not only recorded but wrote it, and man, she really brings a playful energy to a truly positive message!” the band continues. “It’s something we just don’t have enough of these days. And hopefully, her success will prove to be part of a much needed shift in the overall theme and vernacular of the current generation’s taste; a little less superficial commercialism, and a lot more substance.”
Their unique style of barbershop-meets-country has made them stand out from traditional a cappella groups formed these days. The winners of NBC’s ‘The Sing-Off’ Season 4 have made waves online with their a cappella covers of favorites such as One Direction’s ‘Story of My Life’ and Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire.’ But at the end of the day, they say they’re just a group of guys that just want to kick back.
“Our take on her original ’50s throwback sort of vibe, is really just Home Free having fun and getting into the core of who we are: a bunch of regular (and goofy) guys that like having a good time and bringing our own positive and joy filled (all be it, silly as ever) style to a smash pop song.”
