Phil Vassar (Country Music Star) to Serve as Grand Marshal of the 52nd Annual Nashville Gas Christmas Parade


Phil Vassar (Country Music Star) to Serve as Grand Marshal of the 52nd Annual Nashville Gas Christmas Parade. Country music star Phil Vassar will lead marching bands, parade floats and giant helium balloons down Broadway as the Grand Marshal of the 52nd Annual Nashville Gas Christmas Parade, to be held on Friday, December 3rd at 7:30 p.m. This year's parade is presented by Southeast Financial Credit Union.

One of entertainment's most energetic performers, Phil Vassar has been enjoying the success of his third Arista Nashville album, "Shaken Not Stirred," (on Arista) with the number one single, "In A Real Love." In a three out of four star album review, People Magazine says of Phil's talent, "[he] decorates his vocals with his keyboard work in a way that evokes the best singer-pianists, from Nat 'King' Cole and Hoagy Carmichael to Ronnie Milsap and Diana Krall."

Phil Vassar began his career performing his growing repertoire of original songs on the weekends at his Nashville club-restaurant. Before embarking on his solo career, which has produced more than half a dozen Top 10 hits (including the #1 "Just Another Day In Paradise"), the accomplished pianist penned hits for a number of top artists including Tim McGraw ("For a Little While," "My Next Thirty Years"), Alan Jackson ("Right on the Money"), Jo Dee Messina ("Bye Bye," "I'm Alright") and Collin Raye ("Little Red Rodeo"). He has earned numerous songwriting awards as well as new artist distinctions from ACM, CMA, R&R and Gavin.

"We are very excited to have a star of Phil's caliber leading our parade," said John Clark, Vice President of Tennessee Operations, Nashville Gas. "He is such an amazing artist and it is heartening to see how much he cares about the Nashville Community."

"I am honored to serve as the Grand Marshal for the Nashville Gas Christmas Parade," said Phil Vassar. "To be a part of something that has kicked off the holiday season in Nashville for 52 years is truly inspirational."
