WATCH: These singers found the most perfect setting for “How Great Thou Art”

Home Free - published on 12/15/16

It’s hard to decide whether the backdrop or the music is more captivating

The hills are alive with the sound of music…again!

American country a cappella group Home Free, who gained fame after winning the fourth season of The Sing-Off, found the perfect setting for their recording of “How Great Thou Art.” While performing at a country music festival in the Austrian Alps, the group was so impressed by the scenery they knew they had to shoot a music video there. And they had the perfect song. They flew their film crew out from Oregon and captured the magnificent video you see above.

The song is part of their re-released Christmas album appropriately titled Full of (Even More) Cheer, which also features their version of “O Holy Night.”

Full of (Even More) Cheer is available on iTunes.
