Songstress Sarah Darling and iconic songwriter/guitarist Steve
Cropper, known for co-penning “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” join
Vassar in upcoming episodes.

“This is a first for us, and it’ll be a real treat for our fans. We
always wanted to bring them into our home and witness some of the magic
that can happen when we play with icons like Steve Cropper and newcomers
who are as talented as Sarah Darling. And we found “Songs from the
Cellar” was the perfect opportunity to sip some vino, sing our hearts
out and share some laughs,” Vassar said.

connoisseurs as featured “Songs from the Cellar” guests. Each episode
will bring of wine, food pairings, world travel and more to the table.

wine and food pairings.

priced, attractive, crafted and inspired by artists, be featured during
each show with a purpose and story. Fans will also be encouraged to
submit their favorite wines, spirits and craft beverages. They’ll also
be encouraged to submit their favorite watering hole where they want to
see Vassar to perform.

Vassar continues his #noPHILter tour including a sold-out show at
Franklin Theatre Dec. 18 in Franklin, Tenn., which will also be LIVE
streamed through Digital Rodeo TV’s free app, available here.

Utilizing his strong social following that spans 45 countries and
across 6 continents, Vassar’s energetic show is fan driven by social
media requests and includes personal interactions with the crowd.
Vassar’s most recent live streaming broadcast garnered 309,000 viewers
with less than 24 hours notice.

“This is all about transcending the venue and bringing our show
straight to fans. Although we play more than 135 shows a year, we aren’t
able to reach all our fans, and many aren’t able to experience our
Christmas shows. Live streaming allows us reach them wherever they are –
as well as experience our favorite holiday songs,” Vassar said.

Fans can expect to hear original and Christmas classics, new material
from his forthcoming album as well as well as his reign of hits,
including “Carlene,” “Just Another Day in Paradise,” “Six-Pack Summer,”
“That’s When I Love You” and many more.

Vassar will also be joined by rising singer/songwriter Sarah Darling during the Dec. 18 show.

where the tweets come from this Friday, said Vassar.”
