Country Star Phil Vassar Added to Marquee Musical Lineup

    July 27 concert sponsored by DAV, Warbirds of America caps daylong salute to vets

    June 26, 2012 - Award-winning country music star and songwriter Phil Vassar joins the marquee musical lineup slated for EAA AirVenture 2012 as the grand finale of a daylong salute to veterans on Friday, July 27.

    One of Nashville's most prolific and versatile stars, Vassar will take to the Theater in the Woods stage for the evening performance hosted by EAA Warbirds of America and Disabled American Veterans. This Friday concert has drawn more than 6,000 attendees in recent years and again will be the highlight of a veteran-focused day.

    His resume boasts numerous hits he has written for artists like Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Jo Dee Messina, and Collin Raye, and many more hits as an artist in his own right including his latest smash, "Don't Miss Your Life." He's been named the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) Songwriter of the Year twice and has taken top honors from the Academy of Country Music and Billboard MusicRow, and has also been honored by the Country Music Association.

    Vassar is known not only for his gift for hit songwriting, but also for his compelling and highly entertaining skills on the piano. His uniquely piano-based, rhythm and blues-infused, infectiously buoyant brand of music has carried Vassar throughout his career and remains his specialty in the genre. (Read more)
