Here are some quotes from G. Love about Ben's contribution to the track:

"...I added my vocals and got a helping hand from two of my favorite singers – Ben Harper, who just brought the chorus to another level, and Marc Broussard, who added some nice backgrounds."

"We also had Ben Harper and Marc Broussard on “Nothing Quite Like Home.”... I called up Marc and he took a stab at it. Then I dragged Ben to the studio and he did his thing. I was really happy to get those guys on that track."
