When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Season 4 Champions of NBC’s The Sing-Off in December, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota, but a culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity. Home Free will be making a stop at Cox Business Center Assembly Hall on April 24th. To buy tickets go to , and for more information visit .
