Vassar completed an underground wine cellar in 2015 at his historic Nashville estate. 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. Songs from the Cellar is produced by NashPhil Cellars and The Nice Kids.

ABOUT PHIL VASSAR
Phil Vassar’s reign of signature songs include 10 No. 1 singles and 26 Top 40 hits, including Carlene, Just Another Day in Paradise, Six-Pack Summer, When 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 marked 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. Vassar will release a brand new project in 2021 featuring covers from artists that have inspired him throughout his career. Additionally the hitmaker will release a new podcast on the American Songwriter Podcast Network and season 3 of Phil Vassar’s Songs from the Cellar on Circle.
