The Farm debut with "Home Sweet Home"
Tuesday, November 22, 2011
– The Farm's debut single, Home Sweet Home,
was recently released.
The song, currently charting at 46 on Mediabase, comes the trio of Nick Hoffman (vocals, fiddle), Damien Horne (vocals, keyboard, guitar) and Krista Marie (vocals, guitar). The trio, who are on All In/Elektra Nashville/New Revolution, will perform in Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday morning at approximately 9:30.
Hoffman said, "Performing in Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day parade is exciting for Damien, Krista and me for many reasons. The parade is an event full of tradition, so it's an honor for the city to include us in that tradition. It's also a great way for us to share Home Sweet Home with a huge TV audience that might not otherwise hear our music."
Originating after an impromptu songwriting session, Hoffman co-produced the band's forthcoming debut album which will be released next year.

CD reviews for The Farm
The Farm seem constructed to touch all bases. The two-male (Nick Hoffman and Damien Horne) one female (Krista Marie, a former Broken Bow artist) line-up come up with a bunch of generally big sounding, commercially viable songs. Home Sweet Home, the trio's charting single, merges vocal interplay, an ever present fiddle, courtesy of Hoffman (Kenny Chesney's fiddler for 10 years), and a lot of big chord guitar work. They tend to repeat the formula throughout the 11 songs. »»»

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
