NASHVILLE, Tenn. – “Phil Vassar cut his first at-home concert way before it was cool” (The Tennessean / Mathew Leimkuehler) with his series Phil Vassar’s Songs from the Cellar which returns for a second season tonight with special guest Kix Brooks on Circle at 8 p.m. ET, with new episodes airing every Thursday night. Viewers can catch-up on Vassar’s show with a first season marathon beginning at 3 p.m. ET leading up to the premiere. 

“I’m so glad we kick off Season 2 with my good buddy Kix Brooks in the cellar!” Vassar tells The Boot, who premiered a first look to the premiere of season 2. “This episode was so much fun. He’s a guy who knows a lot about wine and a lot about music … two of my favorite things.”
The all-new episodes are filmed in Vassar’s home wine cellar where the award-winning hit-maker delights viewers with intimate collaborations with fellow artists and songwriters, plus engaging conversations on music and life.
Abby Anderson, Brothers Osborne, Kix Brooks, Kyle Daniel, Larry Gatlin, Vince Gill, Kellie Pickler, Dennis Quaid, Steve Wariner, Craig Wiseman, Chingy with Meg & Tyler, Jo Dee Messina, Lonestar and Tracy Lawrence are season two’s all-star celebrity guests.
Songs from the Cellar enjoyed a successful inaugural season on Circle earlier this year with guests CAM, Peter Frampton, Hunter Hayes, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Brenda Lee, Tommy Shaw from Styx and many more. Before makings its domestic premiere, the series previously aired internationally on Sky TV.
Known as a powerhouse piano man of country music’s modern age, Vassar completed the underground wine cellar in 2015 at his historic Nashville estate (which has a centennial birthday in 2029). The cellar quickly became one of Vassar’s favorite rooms to write songs, sing and hang with friends, which led to the show’s initial concept.

Phil Vassar’s reign of signature songs include 10 No. 1 singles and 26 Top 40 hits, including CarleneJust Another Day in ParadiseSix-Pack SummerWhen I Love You, and many more. Vassar was racking up hits on the radio long before he even began his own recording career that has seen the release of nine albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, ACM’s Top New Male Vocalist and sold-out shows across the country. Vassar’s songwriting career blossomed in the mid-’90s when he landed a publishing contract with EMI and penned hits for Collin Raye (Little Red Rodeo), Alan Jackson (Right on the Money), Tim McGraw (My Next Thirty Years, For a Little While), Jo Dee Messina (Bye Bye, Alright), and Blackhawk (Postmarked Birmingham). He signed a record deal of his own with Arista in 1998 and was named ASCAP’s Country Songwriter of the Year in 1999 and 2001. 2020 marks an important anniversary for Vassar, 20 years since his first No. 1 single, “Just Another Day in Paradise,” was released. To celebrate, Vassar released his long-awaited 10th studio album, Stripped Down. The album’s effortless production puts the songs front and center. It features songs written over the past 20 years but never-before recorded and new music, including “This is Where The End Starts”, co- written with daughter, Haley Vassar and Vassar’s take on “Postmarked Birmingham,” a hit he wrote for Blackhawk.
