Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year Phil Vassar Coming to Northeast Florida
By: Thrasher-Horne Center
Vassar’s career has seen the release of eight albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year and countless hits as a singer and songwriter. He has hit the Top 5 seven times with songs like “Carlene,”
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. “I’ve always prided myself on writing a lot of different types of songs. While some people may like to play it safe, I prefer diversity. So it’s about new energy and doing different things, getting away from the old ways and starting fresh.”
Appearing with Vassar is special guest Russell Dickerson. Dickerson’s first single, "Green Light," remained on Sirius XM: The Highway's "Hot 30 Live" for seven weeks straight as an independent artist.
“Performing is on my mind most of any given day,” said Dickerson. “It is what I envision when I am writing, it is what I dream about at night, it is what I want to be doing day in and day out. There is nothing greater than watching fans sing along to the songs that tell their stories and mine.”
Tickets for Phil Vassar with special guest Russell Dickerson are now available to Thrasher-Horne Members. General public tickets will be on sale starting Monday, March 7 at 10 AM. Ticket prices range from $19 to $39.
