Shy Carter, Matthew McGinn and Lindsay Rimes wrote “Heaven,” a romantic song that Brown released as the fourth single from his self-titled debut album. Brown’s previous single, “What Ifs,” gave him his first-ever No. 1 hit when he recorded it as a duet with Lauren Alaina, and “Heaven” currently resides at No. 2 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart.
Brown’s recording mingles a finger-snapping slow jam with traditional country instruments. Home Free put their own unique stamp on the song, retaining the overall feel, but stripping away the instrumentation in favor of their signature smooth harmony blend.
“We often get asked how we choose which songs we want to put our stamp on, and it always comes back to finding something that inspires each one of us, whether it be something sonically or lyrically,” Home Free bass singer Tim Foust says in a press release. “Kane’s voice is so unique and he’s definitely one of our favorite new artists in the genre, so this felt like a perfect fit.”
Home Free rose to fame in 2013 after winning the fourth season of The Sing-Off . The vocal group recently launched the second leg of their Timeless Tour, which runs into early summer to promote their 2017 album of the same name.
