FROM The Greeneville Neighbor News

BRISTOL, Tenn. – County music star Phil Vassar will celebrate Valentine’s Day at the Paramount Center on Feb. 14, at 7:30 p.m.

“His hit single ‘Love is a Beautiful Thing’ should be a perfect fit, being performed from the stage of the Paramount on Valentine’s evening,” said Darlene Cole, Venues Manager for the City of Bristol Tennessee.

Vassar is as driven today as he was when he first left his Lynchburg, Va., home to pursue and realize his dream of making his mark in Country music, Cole said.

Known as one of Nashville’s top tunesmiths, Vassar was racking up hits on the radio long before he even began his own recording career. 

“My Next Thirty Years,” “For a Little While,” (both by Tim McGraw) “She’s Right on the Money,” (Alan Jackson) and “I’m All Right” (Jo Dee Messina) are just a few of the songs he’s penned that other artists have recorded and taken to the top of the charts.

Vassar’s latest single, “Don’t Miss Your Life,” was written on an airplane, and his inspiration was a retired businessman flying to see his family. 

Vassar said the businessman tells “me about all of the things he had missed while building a business and supporting his family.
“I realized all of the things I had missed in my kids’ lives. I was looking at pictures of ‘moments’ in the lives of my daughters on iPad and realized I wasn’t in any of them!” 

For Vassar, his philosophy about songs has never changed during his time spent writing hits for himself and other artists, it’s important for a song to carry a message and make the listener feel something, Cole said.

Co-sponsors of the show are WXBQ Radio, WCYB-TV5 and Marsh Regional Blood Bank.

Tickets on sale now at the Paramount Box Office (423-274-8920), the Viking Hall Box Office (423-764-4171) or
