Utah's favorite dads, The Piano Guys, just release their latest self-made music video "Home," made famous by the 2012 "American Idol" winner Phillip Phillips. This new video finds the band in their home state of Utah.
It was filmed in the town of Springdale near Zion National Park. Check it out here: http://youtu.be/aF-Z1A0ujlg. "We love being on tour and meeting our fans! However, as we travel along with our equipment, cellos and baggage one thing never gets checked away - we miss home. We miss our family. When we first heard 'Home' we couldn't help but be emotionally drawn to it," says Steven Sharp Nelson in a press release. "We love to incorporate classical music snippets into our arrangements. The Largo theme from Dvorak's 'New World Symphony' is one of the greatest classical "folk" melodies ever written. It was a natural fit because the melody is the sound of yearning for home," says Jon Schmidt. The Piano Guys' YouTube videos have amassed millions and millions of views (over 220 million to date). Signed to Sony Masterworks' imprint label Portrait, The Piano Guys released their second album "The Piano Guys 2" on May 7.
