Country Music hit maker singer/songwriter Phil Vassar has landed in the Top 5 seven times with his songs “Carlene”, “Last Day of My Life” and “American Child” and was at the top of the charts with “In A Real Love” and the perennial favorite “Just Another Day in Paradise”. Known as one of Nashville’s top tunesmiths, Vassar’s songs have been performed by many artists who have had #1 honors – “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”, a striking 13 Top 20 Singles including three Number Ones and three Top Fives. Phil Vassar will shine in his own concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, January 10, at 8 p.m. This event is part of the Doyle Coffin Architecture Singer/Songwriter and Xfinity Rock Series with media sponsor KICKS 105.5fm.

With irresistible hooks and equally good looks, Phil Vassar’s piano-based brand of country music is infused with a feel-good, R&B groove. This multi-talented singer/songwriter/pianist has received awards from the Academy of Country Music, Billboard, MusicRow and CMA and was ASCAP’s two-time Songwriter of the Year. New artist David Nail had a hit with Vassar’s “The Sound of a Million Dreams”, which Billboard named the #1 song in their Top 10 Country Songs of 2012.

As someone who recently saw Phil Vassar in concert raved, “If you love great entertainment and you have never seen a Phil Vassar show, then you are missing something fantastic. Country music's ‘Piano man’ has a way of connecting with the audience that I haven't seen since Garth Brooks. Take well written and arranged songs, a beautiful baritone, skilled and soulful piano playing, high energy and an extremely talented band, and you will walk out of the show so glad you came...!”

For tickets ($65), call or visit the box office at The Ridgefield Playhouse, (203) 438-5795. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT; ridgefieldplayhouse.org.
