Home Free Turns Lee Greenwood’s Patriotic Hit Into An A Cappella Masterpiece

Back in 2016, country a cappella group Home Free reimagined one of the most beloved songs ever…Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.”

Few songs fill Americans with as much pride as “God Bless the U.S.A.” Now, 40 years after its release, the song still gives people goosebumps and moves them to tears.

Country Rebel hosted Lee Greenwood for a one-of-a-kind performance of “God Bless the U.S.A.” to celebrate its 40th anniversary. The powerful session was recorded on audio and video, which country fans will surely treasure forever.

You can stream Greenwood’s “Patriot Sessions” performance of “God Bless the U.S.A.” on Spotify, or watch the performance in the video below.


A few years ago, Home Free offered up their own rendition of Greenwood’s patriotic hit. Their a cappella rendition was released in 2016, just days before the 4th of July holiday.

Home Free rose to fame after winning the 2013 season of the singing competition series The Sing-Off. The group is now known for their a cappella versions of country and pop songs such as Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color,” Ed Sheeran’s “Castle on the Hill,” and Zac Brown Band’s “Colder Weather.”

Founding member Chris Rupp arranged Home Free’s version of “God Bless the U.S.A.” The arrangement perfectly showcased each individual member’s talents.

Lead tenor Austin Brown sang most of the solos while the other members provided beautiful harmonies. Beatboxer Adam Rupp chimed in with the more “instrumental” sounds. At one point in the song, he perfectly mimicked the sound of a pounding snare drum.

The five talented singers added an extra patriotic element to their performance by singing in front of Mount Rushmore.
