Phil VassarSaturday, January 11, 2014
Phil Vassar is as driven today as he was when he first left his Lynchburg, Virginia home to pursue – and realize – his dream of making his mark in entertainment. A career that has seen the release of eight albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year, countless hits as a singer and songwriter and a mantle full of awards and the launch of his own Rodeowave Entertainment label continues to expand and evolve.
As a singer/songwriter, Phil has hit the Top 5 seven times with songs like “Carlene,” “Last Day of My Life” and “American Child” and topped the charts with “In A Real Love” and the perennial favorite “Just Another Day in Paradise.” Known as one of Nashville’s top tunesmiths, his songs other artists have taken to #1 include “My Next Thirty Years” by Tim McGraw, “She’s Right On The Money” by Alan Jackson, and Jo Dee Messina’s “Bye, Bye” and “I’m Alright.” New artist David Nail had a hit with Phil’s “The Sound of a Million Dreams,” which Billboard named the #1 song in their Top 10 Country Songs of 2012.
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, and his latest single, “Love Is Alive,” is no exception. Written with frequent co-writer, the award-winning Tom Douglas (“The House That Built Me,” “Little Rock,” “I Run To You”), the new release is the foundation for a much-anticipated new album that hit stores on Rodeowave in mid-2013.
At just 16 years old, Leah has performed in over 400 local and regional shows. She has performed in Nashville, at the Nashville Palace, the Blue Bird Café and regularly at the Commodore Grille. She has opened for acts such as Ronnie McDowell, Aaron Tippin, Sammy Kershaw, Joe Diffie, and Colt Ford. Through APA, Leah has opened for JoDee Messina and opens for Phil Vassar at various shows. She has performed shows for WFRE Free Country 99.9FM where she recently opened for Cassadee Pope and The Henningsens and will be opening for Sara Evans.
She has truly become an accomplished musician, and an incredibly talented pop/country artist. Leah has them standing in lines as an acoustic solo artist or with her full band! Her infectious smile and crowd pleasing music continue to wow young and old alike!
