Milwaukee, WI— Milwaukee Admirals President Jon Greenberg announced today that national recording artist Phil Vassar & Friends will perform at the team’s annual FM106/Miller Lite Country Music Night on Friday, January 23rd following the team’s 7:00 pm game with the San Antonio Rampage.
“Country Music Night has always been one of our most exciting and successful promotions,” noted Greenberg. “Phil Vassar is one of the most popular country music artists touring right now and we know that he is going to put on a spectacular show for all of our fans.”
Vassar, a talented singer, songwriter, and pianist has sold millions of albums since his debut in the late 1990’s. In 2008 he released his newest record Prayer of a Common Man, which included two Billboard Hot Country singles.
This world renowned artist has been awarded Song of the Year and also named Song Writer of the Year multiple times. His song “Love is a Beautiful Thing” is currently up for Gospel-Country Video of the Year. Vassar was credited with the title “Top New Male Vocalist” at the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2002.
Vassar is certainly no stranger to the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart. Sixteen of his popular singles have been featured on the chart, including “Just Another Day in Paradise” and “In a Real Love,” both of which reached the top of the chart.
Vassar will also bring a number of up-and-coming country music artists who will perform along side of him. Those artists will be announced at a later date.
