Soon We Could be Hearing a Lot From Phil Vassar [VIDEO]
We haven’t heard from Phil Vassar in a while but that looks like that will change soon. Phil has been busy! In fact we could possibly see three albums from him in the next six months.
After recording a series of hit records for Arista Nashville and Universal South over the last decade, Vassar has gone indie, starting his own label, Rodeowave Entertainment. It’s given him a new freedom, as he told Taste of Country during a recent interview.
“I’m just excited,” he explained. “I feel like I’m cutting my first record all over again. I think that’s what’s really good for me … just the excitement of doing things like this and doing them different. Having this new company is a real breath of fresh air.”
Vassar is already promoting his first Rodeowave release, and he’s in the studio, working on his next two projects. “I’ve cut 12 songs for the new album, but we just don’t know exactly when we want to put it out yet,” he explained. “It’s really different. I’ve got a lot of different things on this one. I’m excited about that, just because it has a lot of different flavors. It’s been nice just having the opportunity to take my time to do this thing.”
And after that? Vassar is already completing a Christmas album, which he hopes to have out in November. “So I may have three records out in the next six months, which is crazy!” he laughed. “I do know I’ll have the Christmas record done [this year]. I’ve always wanted to do one. We’re in the middle of cutting all that right now. There’s going to be several originals on it, which is cool. I’ve written a couple of Christmas things. I really like them. It’s been a lot of fun.”
Here is his latest single “Let’s Get Together”. Tell us what you think!
