Country music hitmaker Phil Vassar is a piano-pounding powerhouse on stage who taps into his audiences via social media for song requests throughout his more than 135 shows a year. Phil’s reign of signature songs include 10 No. 1 singles and 26 Top 40 hits, including Carlene, Just Another Day in Paradise, Six-Pack Summer, When I Love You; and many more. Vassar was racking up hits on the radio long before he even began his own recording career that has seen the release of six albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, ACM’s Top New Male Vocalist and sold-out shows across the country. Vassar's songwriting career blossomed in the mid- ’90s when he landed a publishing contract with EMI and penned hits for Collin Raye (Little Red Rodeo), Alan Jackson (Right on the Money), Tim McGraw (For a Little While), Jo Dee Messina (Bye Bye, Alright), and Blackhawk (Postmarked Birmingham). He signed a record deal of his own with Arista in 1998 and was named ASCAP's Country Songwriter of the Year in 1999. Vassar continues to churn out incisive, soulful lyrics and infectious melodies that capture the heart and soul in the unique and special way that only he can.

    A native of Lynchburg, Virginia, Phil earned a track scholarship to JMU, where he began to take music seriously. With unbounded energy and limitless talent, Phil has proven himself, again and again, as one of Nashville’s most prolific and versatile stars. His resume boasts six No. 1 hits for country artists including Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Jo Dee Messina and Collin Raye. In a career that has seen the release of eight albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year awards, Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year, and the launch of his own record label, Phil continues to make his mark in the entertainment industry. Excited at the limitless possibilities of the freedom of running his own label, he is also extending the knowledge and experience he has gained over the years to other artists. The full-service record label/promotions/management company not only handles details of his own career but has promoted music by The Lumineers, Neal McCoy, and new artists Miss Willie Brown and High Valley. The company is also the launch pad for television and film projects. A new movie called Fat Biscuit will begin shooting in the fall of 2013. His love of travel, food and meeting new people heavily influenced a tv project currently in production. No stranger to television, Phil was nominated for an Emmy Award in the "Outstanding Original Song" category for his composition "Live For Today," which performed and produced for a recurring series on NBC's Today Show.
