INTERVIEW: Phil Vassar

Prior to his headlining performance at Buckle & Boots Festival on Sunday June 26th at Whitebottom Farm, we had a chat on the phone with Phil Vassar about returning to the UK, his brand new album, and his thoughts on today’s country music.

Since his debut in the late 1990s, Phil Vassar has achieved ten #1 hits and an impressive fifteen Top 10 singles in the US, and he has also established himself as one of Nashville’s most talented song writers. His co-writes include hit singles ‘For A Little While’ and ‘My Next Thirty Years’ for Tim McGraw, ‘Right On The Money’ for Alan Jackson and ‘Little Red Rodeo’ for Collin Raye. Not to mention his Top New Male Vocalist win at the 2002 ACM Awards. Phil’s unique take on country and his incisive, soulful lyrics have truly stood the test of time.
