In the Monday, Dec. 23, finale of the first season of NBC's a cappella vocal competition "The Sing-Off" under new executive producer Mark Burnett ("The Voice"), the Minnesota-based, all-male country group Home Free is just that, with a trophy in hand. Despite the holiday theme of the two-hour finale, it was actually taped in mid-September. After being named the winners (and doing a bit of celebrating), the members of Home Free -- Matthew "Austin" Brown, Rob Lundquist, Chris Rupp, Tim Foust (he of the very deep voice) and Adam Rupp -- gathered backstage to talk to Zap2it."It's more than every dream I've ever had come true," Brown says.

The Sing-Off Recap: Thoughts Turn to 98 Degrees

Plus, it’s a tiny bit lighter on the choreography, which is a thing we can all get behind.  Read More... //
