Multi-platinum selling Phil Vassar joins all-star lineup to perform the National Anthem during FOX Nation's second annual Patriot Awards Friday, November 20. Vassar performs alongside Jessie James Decker, Easton Corbin, Tyler Farr, Clint Black, Natalie Grant and Thompson Square for the virtual event at 8 p.m. ET live on FOX Nation with encore presentation on FOX News Channel (FNC) and FOX Business Network (FBN) throughout the weekend.
Throughout the evening, select patriots will be honored in a number of categories including: The Everyday Patriot, Most Valuable Patriot (MVP), Patriot Award for Service to Veterans, Patriot Award for the Unsung Hero, Patriot Award for Courage, The Young Patriot, Patriot Award for Heroism and The Patriot Award for the Modern Warrior. On Sunday November 22nd, both FNC and FBN will present a one-hour program dedicated to the special event at 10PM/ET and 11PM/ET, respectively.
FOX Nation will donate $5 dollars to Answer the Call for every new subscription order from November 13th through November 22nd. The foundation provides financial assistance and support to the families of New York City police and firefighters who have been killed in the line of duty. In November 2019, FOX Nation presented its inaugural Patriot Awards ceremony live from the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida where the sold-out event raised over $50,000 dollars for Folds of Honor, a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members.
Vassar just wrapped a successful second season of his series Phil Vassar's Songs from the Cellar on Circle. Abby Anderson, Brothers Osborne, Kix Brooks, Kyle Daniel, Larry Gatlin, Vince Gill, Kellie Pickler, Dennis Quaid, Steve Wariner, Craig Wiseman and Chingy with Meg & Tyler were season two's illustrious lineup of celebrity guests.
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.
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 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.
