    I like that you mention how they're not "competing" when they sing together. One of the things I love about Home Free is that there really doesn't seem to be anyone who is a bigger fan of any given member of the band than the other members of of the band. Their mutual admiration and respect for one another is so lovely.

    Yes Rob is opera trained. He was headed to become an opera singer and then changed paths. I don’t remember why. This is his father’s favorite song. Austin had to spend a lot of time convincing him to do this. Rob was a bit scared to do it since he hasn’t done opera in a long time and Austin wanted to show off his (Rob’s) skill. Austin loves the song too.
    One of the things I think makes Home Free great is that they are always encouraging each other. They have no egos over who should sing lead in any song (in fact they often take turns singing the song to see who fits best where) and support each other in trying things differently all the time. We could all use friends like that.

      Austin is also classically trained, just not as much as Rob. Anyone who formally studies voice begins by learning to sing classical music.

      Yes, we saw how the rest of the group encouraged Austin to start developing a solo career, even when he wasn't sure he was good enough, how Tim nagged him to record When a Man Loves a Woman for several years. There is a special bond between Rob and Austin, dating back 10 years to when they first met.

    Rob's darker (nearly baritenor) quality with Austin's brighter, high tenor voice just compliment each other so well on this.

      @kathleen zwicker, Rob's tessitura and timbre does put him in baritenor territory, though. He is quite comfortable in the mid 2nd octave, whereas, you can hear Austin is a pure tenor with his breathy, weak notes in the upper 2nd octave.

    So glad to see that you reacted to this William, it absolutely blew my mind when I saw it the first time. I always associated this aria with Pavarotti, and yes there were other great tenor’s, Domingo and Carras, of course but Pavarotti took ownership of it at some point and it seemed to be universally accepted, I absolutely accepted it. I love Home Free and Pentatonix, amazing a cappella groups, and of course Dimash, so I am looking forward to seeing your journey with some a cappella. This has always been my favorite tenor aria, I was so pleased with these gentlemen, and yes , clearly Rob is trained, he’s been holding out on us, secretly I think Austin talked him into this so the world could hear the other side of Rob’s voice, Austin looks so proud of Rob, they are precious ❤

    I knew that Home Free covered almost any genre and one day I said to my sister "I fully expect to tune in some day and see Rob and Austin singing Nessun Dorma". And then they actually did it. And pretty well, I think. I hope you take a look at some of HF's catalog. Maybe How Great Thou Art or Helplessly Hoping to start. But you really can't miss no matter where you start.

    Great reaction! I have never been a fan of opera except maybe some Andrea Bocelli & a few others. But I have always appreciated the talent it takes to sing opera. I was pretty impressed with Rob & Austin's version of Nessun Dorma. I have heard this famous song done by Pavarotti. I think I was more surprised by Rob's range & powerful delivery than even Austin's. Rob had some opera training 15 years ago. And Austin is trained in musical theatre. Pretty good for a couple of country boys! Nice to see them dressed up in suits & looking classy.

      @Bangkok Voice Coach I agree about Bocelli. The first time I heard this Pavarotti was singing it. Brought me to tears and it did every time after that. This was nice but I didn't feel any emotion from it nor was there any depth of sound it was all in their head to me. That is just me. Some women have sung it and I don't know why considering the meaning. How is the reno coming along?

    I watched a Q&A session with Home Free a few years ago where someone asked who they felt was their best singer, and everyone but Rob said Rob. He's not got the broadest vocal range, the highest note, or the lowest note, but he has such a range of styles that he takes on effortlessly. Listen to this, then Man of Constant Sorrow, then Blue Ain't Your Color, then End of the Road, then What Christmas Means to Me, then the Butts Remix/Medley and be blown away by this man's facility at switching genres. He's massively talented, but so sweet with absolutely no ego.

      I suppose I was more focused on Austin here because I know how rare that type of voice is. It literally sits 4 or 5 semitones above the standard male voice and.... because so much music was written for this voice type.... it's always needed!!

    What a great reaction!!!! You are right. Whatever I always say, you feel the brotherhood with them, not rivalry. That's why Austin managed to convince Rob to do this. But yes this is wow, wow and wow.. This is insane. Fantastic. Both are absolutely great, but you recognize Austin's voice right away. But Rob, I'm perplexed. His voice is just magical, so rich, so warm and powerful. Chills just ran through my body. It flows into my heart. For me he will be able to stand with the greatest of opera singers. It's not often that I listen to songs by opera singers 5 times and more in a row. But here it is. Of course I hope that both will always continue to do Home Free, but I wouldn't think it wrong that such "trips" are made more often. Opera, country, ballads, soul etc. I think anything is possible..

You actually listen to the music rather than constantly interrupt to give opinions. Home Free is probably the most genuine group in the music industry today. Everything they sing, no matter the genre, is excellent, and they have great fun doing it. They're sincere, serious, and goofy about their craft. I could listen to them, and generally do, everyday. Hope you react to more of their songs. I'll be watching for your impressions.

    I was interested that you said that Austin's voice was worth a lot! I think he'd like some pointers on that! Money is of course a constant worry for independent artists and the industry seems to be trying to starve them out. Touring used to be the answer, now that''s getting more expensive. Home Free have said that they are cutting back their touring schedule quite dramatically, because they can't afford to do shows in small venues any more, and they are all in a stage of life where they want time with their kids and SOs. I have thought for some time that Austin should find some way of getting back to musical theatre, where his beautiful voice might be heard, but he may have left it too late. We'll see how he and his bandmates deal with the extra time to themselves.
    You might be interested to hear Austin's versions of demos sent to him by a slightly reclusive figure known only as ResurrecSis Music, in arrangements by his constant colleague Sebastien Douyon. The first I heard, called Empty House, is a stunning hard blues expressing great grief, and I think it's Austin's best work to date. He doesn't just kill it, but buries it too. Another called Your Bed is very Broadway ballad in style and he hits exactly the right tone and style.

      Hello! I found your comment very interesting! I checked out ResurrecSis and Austin’s beautiful vocals.
      Touring is so expensive, with hotels, flights, theatre hire, publicity & PR, taxes, promotors’ cuts, there can be surprisingly little left to divide between five! I was in a singing trio that toured the US & Canada and it was a constant battle to cover costs. I left the group and made my money in the world of corporate & wedding entertainment. It may not be everyone’s dream but at least I got a largish nest egg with which I could move to Thailand.
      One thing for Austin: it’s hard to make big money when you are singing other people’s songs because they get most of the royalties. If he could combine his astonishing vocal talent with some self-penned hit ballads, he could become wealthy. As Don McLean once said when asked what does American Pie mean. “It means I’ll never have to work again.” Boom! 🙄🎶🙏

      Where exactly was the twang? I keep asking people who refer to it and never get an answer. I can't hear it, Italian reactors can't hear it. (Btw I think you meant "loses"). As for "never" singing without an accent, I'd refer you to a song called Your Bed, Austin's version of a demo he was sent, which is in a rather Broadway style. He sings it in that style, with a completely neutral accent. What did you think he was doing on a course designed to produce top rate musical theatre performers? He's spoken of being trained to get the Georgia out of his voice.

    Hi William, yes, both of them can sing.😄😂😇 These are trained voices that complement each other wonderfully in terms of pitch. I suspect that if only one of them had sung it wouldn't have sounded so great - although each voice is exceptionally good on its own. But together they are even better.
    I allow myself to recommend an artist to you - AURORA.
    AURORA (Aurora Aksnes) was born on June 15, 1996 in Stavanger, Norway. She is a singer, songwriter and producer with a style all her own.
    AURORA's songs always have a strong message. Often the messages are not very clear either. They can be interpreted so that many people can relate them to themselves. Her movements when singing are extraordinary. This isn't a dance. This is her special way of expression. You can also say that she sings with her whole body. Her excellent music, her brilliant voice and her movements. AURORA's live performances are a total work of art. She is often so into the song that she shakes her body or head uncontrollably (--> Murder song, It happened quiet) and need 2-3 seconds to come back.
    AURORA once said: People tend to believe quite quickly that something is wrong with them if they're not like the people they see in front of them.
    It's so sad that it doesn't take much for us to really doubt ourselves
    - It Happened Quiet (Live at The Current) - kzclip.net/video/9U-N6LqzdIM/бейне.html - it's about the rape of a woman - some say - these great harmonies
    --> One opera singer has responded to "It Happened Quiet" by saying that the harmonies remind her of Lakme's "Flower duet".
    And that something like that would be very rare to find in today's music.
    - Through The Eyes Of a Child (Live at Nidarosdomen) - kzclip.net/video/ncG9zTzsisE/бейне.html - she sang in norway's biggest cathedral - phenomenal acoustics
    - Murder song (5,4,3,2,1) - The 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert - kzclip.net/video/vh0SWTVwXxw/бейне.html - the saddest love song I've ever heard
    Three important bits of information I found from another commenter:
    1. -- In a recent interview she said "well, the last song I wrote is meant for my 7th album.” -
    AURORA's latest album, the fourth, was released on January 21, 2022. She's already in the planning for the 7th.
    2. -- AURORA was a teen when she answered the question "are some of your songs related (on different albums)?" - it will all make sense when I have finished. -
    AURORA has a plan and we don't know the destination yet. But it is important to know that everything belongs together.
    3. AURORA is holding back one song from every decade of her life to release those songs as the last album after her death.
    Which artist does that?
    I hope that I was able to arouse your curiosity.
    Have a nice day and
    Greetings from Germany

      I totally agree that this had to be a duet. That's what makes it work. Their interaction and support of each other is so brotherly.

    Rob is classically trained but had not used that in about 15 years.
    Austin is theatrically trained which also included singing.
    I would love to see you react to Pentatonix Silent Night.
    Silent Night
    Avi was their bass for 6 years and he is the soloist in this song.
    Avi is a classically trained basso Profundo with quite the wide range.
    PTX won the A Capella singoff two years before Home Free.

    Nice to hear your review.
    Popular singers can often have come from a classical or opera background. Rob Lundquist had formal operatic training and sounds gorgeous in this. Austin Brown was more focused on musical theater in university but can handle this quite beautifully. Austin is the high tenor in Homefree, Rob is the tenor.
    If you didn't know Homefree did not focus on country music until the Sing-Off competition when they were asked to focus on it for the show.
    Avi Kaplan is another popular singer who was with the American acapella band Pentatonix and now is a singer-songwriter in folk rock but was one of the rare basso profundos training in opera and choral studies in college when the Pentatonix opportunity came up.

      Yes I knew that they focused only on country towards the end. That became their USB. I think Austin is awesome.

    Rob was actually trained in Classically trained in college. Austin has both Classically ang Musical theater training. This was Austin's idea and he had to convince Rob to do it. You see Rob had not sung Opera in 15 years. Truly enjoyed watching your reaction and analysis to this song.

    Great! Brilliant performance! Except Austin didn't seem too emotional to me, despite his gorgeous voice. Maybe I don't understand something))))

      If you look at a translation of the lyrics, you'll see that in Rob's first part the prince is dreaming about the sociopathic princess he hopes to win. In Austin's first part the prince stops dreaming and expresses his determination only to divulge his identity when he kisses the girl. So that part can't be dreamy and emotional.

      @Bangkok Voice Coach Hi! I would like to invite you to listen to the wonderful Russian opera singer Ildar Abdrazakov. But maybe you know him.
      Ildar Abdrazakov Don Basilio aria, performed near the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia
      Aida Garifullina and Ildar Abdrazakov "No ti scordar ti me" (fan camera, unfortunately)
      A couple of days ago, Ildar opened the season in La Scala, Milan, performing the main role in the opera Boris Godunov.

      Good not to be "too emotional" when you are singing those difficult Puccini vocals. Don't want to disturb the constant flow of breath! I think he handled it exactly right.

    Rob studied Opera in college 15 years ago and wasn't sure he could sing it again. Once Austin heard Rob's part, he redid his part because he didn't think his first try was good enough.

      Exactly. Austin’s voice is more rare and very much in demand for opera and musical theatre because it’s the “Romantic lead” voice type.

      Pavarotti has 40 million hits for this aria! And Bocelli probably another 40 million. I think the guys did it really as a challenge and we’re really surprised at how well it turned out.
