“One of the country’s most appealing voices.” 
The New York Times

JMU alumnus and contemporary country singer Phil Vassar returns to campus for two performances with his band. Vassar made his name as a chart-topping songwriter before landing a record deal and becoming a hit-making artist in his own right. A native of Lynchburg, Virginia, Vassar earned a track scholarship to JMU, where he began to take music seriously. With unbounded energy and limitless talent, Vassar 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, Vassar continues to make his mark in the entertainment industry. www.philvassar.com
