Country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Champions of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” in 2013 launching them onto the national spotlight. The group, hailing from Mankato, Minnesota was founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years when they performed at countless State and County Fairs, college campuses and in theaters across the country.  Home Free continues to entertain audiences nationwide with their high-energy show peppered with quick-witted humor that meshes Nashville standards with pop hits dipped in country flavor. They were a unanimous hit last summer when they debuted at the tent, tying for Number 1 in our reader’s poll of favorite 2015 Big Top shows. We’re thrilled to welcome them back.

In this episode’s monologue – delivered from the backstage dressing room with the one lonely little lightbulb burnin’ –Mike tells the story of the clodhopper and the Prince.  Then–in clodhopper terms–he defines the Big Dang Word “encomium.”
