Phil Vassar to Perform at Maryland State Fair
Updated: Thursday, August 21 2014, 08:38 PM EDT
Phil Vassar is a staple in the country music scene, and will be one of the performers at this year’s Maryland State Fair.
Phil has released eight albums and charted 19 singles on the billboard hot country song charts, including two number one hits. He prides himself on singing and writing melodies that capture the heart and soul. His latest single, Love is Alive, is no exception.
Phil exemplifies longevity in the industry but he remembers the days when it all began.
“I grew up in Virginia so, the first place I ever played music was in Baltimore, at these clubs, you know I played a couple clubs in Baltimore, I played clubs in you know, Ocean City, we played Annapolis, DC, that’s where I cut my teeth playing music in the first place,” Vassar said.
He didn't just perform on stage in Maryland; he also worked at Hale's Seafood, which is now Pappas Seafood in Parkville. Vassar says he always enjoys eating crabs when he returns to Maryland
