Born: July 19, 1981 Hometown: Nederland, Texas
Tim Foust was born in Lubbock, and grew up in Nederland, Texas. As a boy, he would sing to his little sister, and his grandmother encouraged him at the piano. One of his high school music teachers overheard Tim and a couple of friends singing in an acapella style and encouraged them by remarking that you can make money doing that.
Tim sang with Totally Acapella from 1996-2001 while he was in high school and during early college. While at Lamar University (pre-dental) in nearby Beaumont, Tim also sang with the University's Cardinal Singers. Feeling the call of show business, Tim left Lamar and moved to Nashville. He sang with various professional acapella singing groups and even did a stint on the cruise ship circuit.
Tim wrote and arranged 12 songs on his solo album entitled The Best That I Could Do. Tim is known for his remarkably wide vocal range covering 5 octaves and his bone vibrating base notes. His writing and arranging capabilities are also significantly demonstrated on the album.
In 2012, Tim officially joined Home Free, another acapella group. In 2013, with Tim in place, the Home Free sound came together. They successfully landed a position to compete on the 4th Season of The Sing Off television program, ultimately winning the competition.
Home Free tours the world traveling through more than 16 countries annually. The group has placed several albums on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts, and as of 2019, their online video viewing number is 350 million and growing.
"They're the only group that I've seen in years that could capture what we captured and carry it further."
– Oak Ridge Boys' Duane Allen (Rolling Stone Country)
Home Free collaborations include songs with Don McLean and Kenny Rogers before his passing. A pre-filmed concert was streamed from December 2 to December 5, 2020, and featured guest appearances by Alabama and The Oak Ridge Boys, among others.
