Tim Foust, Cohost

Tim Foust, a member of Home Free, cohosted the highly anticipated inaugural red carpet event. Tim says, “It has been a thrill to see a cappella music go from underground to mainstream over the last couple of decades, and it continues to be an honor to be a part of it. I look forward to helping shine an even broader and brighter spotlight on this amazing artform.”
