December 30th, 2019 by

Mark your calendars, music fans, because one of country’s most prominent songwriters is coming to Mount Pocono! Don’t miss Phil Vassar when his tour comes through town.

Make Your Plans

Vassar will play at the Event Center at Mount Airy on Thursday, January 9. Doors will open at 7 p.m., and the show will begin at 8 p.m. The venue is located at 312 Woodland Road, Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania 18344.

The Hitsteria Tour

In two decades, Vassar has racked up 27 top 40 hits, 15 top 10s, and 10 number one chart-toppers. To celebrate his long record of success, he has embarked on his “Hitsteria Tour,” traveling across the U.S. from now until summer, 2020. The excursion kicked off in Nashville on December 20 and will wrap up in Greeley, Colorado this July. Prior to Hitsteria, he played in 13 cities with Lonestar for their “Holiday & Hits Tour.” This was the second year in a row that the two acts have traveled together for a series of Christmastime shows.

A Career’s Worth of Hits

When he was fresh out of college, Vassar chose to move to Nashville to enter the music industry. He found songwriting work with a publisher, and while business was slow at first, he started generating hits by the late 1990s. A few high-profile country singers picked up several of his songs, with Tim McGraw recording “For a Little While,” Blackhawk singing “Postmarked Birmingham,” and Alan Jackson taking on “Right on the Money.” In 1999, Vassar landed his own recording contract, signing to the Arista Nashville label.

Vassar then released his first number one hit, “Just Another Day in Paradise.” The song introduces one of Vassar’s mainstay themes, everyday American life, and he counts his blessings while dealing with the challenges that come with them. The years that followed saw a series of successful albums, including American Child and Prayer of a Common Man. Throughout his career, the songwriter has won a slew of accolades and recognitions, including ASCAP’s Songwriter of the Year award in 1999 and Song of the Year for “Bye, Be.”
