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.

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.”

Country star Phil Vassar brings new music to Harvester
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.”
