Vassar goes to video with Bobbi With An I

Friday, June 26, 2009 – Phil Vassar is releasing the video for his new single Bobbi With An I exclusively to AOL. Shot in Nashville, Vassar enlisted the help of his friend and actor James Denton (Desperate Housewives) to create a video fitting for the summer song directed by Eric Welch. Bobbi With An I, penned by Vassar and Craig Wiseman, is the debut single from Vassar's forthcoming studio album set to be released later this summer.

"Bobbi is actually a guy I knew - this outrageous guy who showed up at a club one night dressed as a girl," said Vassar. "It was just a funny way to pick up chicks."

Actor and fellow Tennessean James Denton was in the video. "I've always been a big fan of Phil's so working with him on the "Share The Beat" events was a lot of fun for me. The guy donates an unbelievable amount of his time to charity. I was happy to be part of one of his videos - particularly a song that's as much fun as Bobbi. We have a lot in common. He's a family guy. The shoot was a real family affair - his sister, mom and daughter were all at the shoot, and that told me a lot about him."

Now, after a few albums that mostly failed to produce more than one hit single each, Vassar is trying to resurrect his heyday. Circus does have some solid tracks on it, ...
CD review - Prayer of a Common Man This is an ambitious title for country music's fun-loving, upbeat "Piano Man." Conjuring images of a hard-working fellow relying on faith to make it through the hard times, Phil Vassar's fourth album (and label debut) does indeed live up to its name, exploring the themes of the modern-day American - work, love, faith, family, heartbreak in Vassar's most introspective effort yet. Vassar's voice still balances that fine line between smooth, soulful, and rugged, but ...
CD review - Greatest Hits Volume 1 Some may consider Phil Vassar mainly a songwriter, but truth be told he brought his show to Nashville's road in search of success as a singer. Somewhere along the way, lavish lyrics and piano man talents were found and fine-tuned. But this collection is the first to contain his versions of hits made famous by others. Although armed with powerful vocals, the music is somewhat of a disappointment, comparatively speaking. Some instrumentation on these "new" tracks seems strangely subdued in spots. ...
