Phil Vassar joins Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley to Sling Tomatoes For Second Harvest Food Bank
There is something really special that happens when some of Nashville’s most talented musicians and fashion designers come together to support the community they love.
On Wednesday (Oct. 7), Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and his wife Brittney, Big Kenny and Christiev Alphin, Phil Vassar, Nashville star Charles Esten, GAC’s Nan Kelley and fashion designers Johnathan Kayne and Margaret Roberts gathered at Second Harvest Food Bank to announce a donation of 43,000 pounds of tomato products from Red Gold tomatoes to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. With more than 400,000 people in Second Harvest’s 46-county service area not knowing where their next meal will come from, the much-needed donation will go a long way to feed people in need.
“We’ve had a relationship with Second Harvest for a couple of years now and they’ve really taken the time to educate us on the hunger issue here in Nashville and around the country,” said Brian, who is a member of Second Harvest’s community council. “It means so much to us to be able to be here. We are so thankful that we are in a position to be able to give back, raise awareness and be a part of something that is so much bigger than ourselves”.
“The numbers are staggering,” added his wife Brittney. “To think that 400,000 don’t know where their next meal will come from, it’s beyond us. There is no other place we would rather be this morning than helping out here at Second Harvest and looking for opportunities to get the word out.”
The donation is a part of Red Gold’s partnership with the inaugural Off the Record Fashion Show taking place on Sunday, Nov. 1 at Sylvia Roberts’ home, which doubles as Rayna James’ home on ABC’s Nashville. Carl Black and Patron are also sponsors of the event. Tickets for the event are $500 each, with a portion of the proceeds going to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
The evening will feature designers from around the world including Gucci, John Varvatos, Peter Nappi, S. Carter, Amanda Valentine, Johnathan Kayne, MINXX by Margaret Roberts and Tribe Kelley by Brian and Brittney Kelley. Icelandic indie-pop act Kaleo will perform an acoustic set, while Chase Bryant, Big Kenny, Old Dominion and The Cadillac Three will be doing full-band performances throughout the evening. Tommy Shaw of Styx and Phil Vassar are set to perform during the fashion show.
“Fashion, music and charity. There are lots of big voices and talented people for a good cause,” added Brian.
For more information on the event, which is being produced by Neste Event Marketing and Entertainment Buy, or to purchase tickets at $500 each, go to the Off the Record Nashville website.
FANS MAKE THEIR WAY INTO PHIL VASSAR'S "SHE'S ON HER WAY" MUSIC VIDEO
Multi-talented country hitmaker, Phil Vassar, wanted to capture the essence of his loyal fans in his new music video, “She’s On Her Way,” and after hundreds of submissions, he did just that in an acoustic version released on Vassar’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Click HERE to watch the video.
Directed by Rob Chianelli, the video showcases Vassar belting out “She’s On Her Way” in his home studio covered in fan photos from floor-to-ceiling. The music video intertwines momentous moments submitted by his fans, like birthdays, proposals and weddings, while Vassar shows off his accentuated vocal runs.
“It is so cool how so many of our fans got involved in this project,“ said Vassar. “We really love our fans and this was a great way to let them be a part of this project.”
A fan favorite during his current #noPHILter tour, “She’s On Her Way,” penned by Vassar, Kim Nichols and Jeff Outlaw, was originally released on Vassar’s 2009 album Traveling Circus.
“I’ve always loved the song ‘She’s On Her Way,’” said Vassar. “Me and my co-writers Kim Nichols, and Jeff Outlaw were hanging out one day talking about our kids. The more we talked and I thought about my own 2 daughters, Haley and Presley, we really got inspired. But, I have to admit, it was the most emotional I have ever been writing a song. I was all torn up before, during, and after. Even today when I hear the song, it still touches a chord in me. Over the years, fans would tell us how much the song meant to them and how they used it at their wedding. So, we thought we would say thanks to them and do a fan driven video.”
“She’s On Her Way” is available for download on iTunes here.
"Phil Vassar has always had a gift for touching people with a great song,” said award-winning journalist Deborah Evans Price. “He does that again with "She's On Her Way," a loving tribute to his two beautiful daughters that so many other families have adopted as their own song. The accompanying video is a beautiful piece of art that incorporates photos and videos from his fans that gives them an opportunity to share their cherished memories with the world. Leave it to Phil Vassar to give his fans such a special gift.
Vassar continues his energetic, piano-pounding #noPHILter tour across the country with real-time interaction with his fans by including song requests from live tweets like “She’s On Her Way.”
