Mountain Dew Country & Bluegrass Series
Doyle Coffin Singer | Songwriter Series
Special guest Bobby McGrath
Country music hitmaker Phil Vassar is a piano-pounding powerhouse! Phil’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,” “That’s 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 six 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 (“For a Little While,” “My Next Thirty Years”), Jo Dee Messina (“Bye Bye,” “I’m 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.
Kicking off the night is a contemporary country music singer-songwriter Bobby McGrath. In addition to a performing on NBC’s TODAY Show in 2014, he has recently opened for Rascal Flatts, Phil Vassar, Tyler Farr, Frankie Ballard and The Swon Brothers at packed venues like Prudential Center, Highline Ballroom and Irving Plaza!
