“But for me, this is my thing, this is my little world that I can control now, and I’m really excited about this journey, getting new music out to the fans and working on other avenues to entertain people,” he said. “For me, that’s what it’s all about.”

Vassar will open the 2015-16 Baileigh Industrial Marquee Series presented by WNCY, Y100 and the Capitol Civic Centre.

Tickets are on sale for the two-hour show, which is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 9, at the Civic Centre.

Phil Vassar has had some big-time country music hits. With his first new album in five years on the horizon, he thinks he might have some more in him.

Vassar, whose list of No. 1 hits includes “American Child,” “Bye Bye” and “Carlene,” will bring those songs and some of the new numbers to Harvester Performance Center on Saturday.

“It’s really different music,” Vassar said of the repertoire on an album tentatively scheduled for an early 2016 release. “I really feel like I’ve evolved as a writer. It’s not like it’s unrecognizable, but I really do feel like it’s some different stuff, and different than kind of what’s going on out there now, which is really kind of what I aim for.”

Part of the Lynchburg native’s break had to do with family. The singer/songwriter of “Don’t Miss Your Life” called The Roanoke Times earlier than scheduled on Aug. 19, as he planned to pick up his daughters from school. Earlier, he had posted a throwback photo to Twitter. He was holding aloft his oldest during the 2001 video shoot for “American Child.”
