CMA Awards.

Vassar, who’s continuing his #noPHILter

smash hit “Just Another Day in Paradise” Monday night outside
Bridgestone Arena. The crowd sang along with Vassar and Hayes during the
free outdoor concert that spilled into the streets of Music City’s
downtown. Hayes and Vassar shared the stage with Cole Swindell, Striking
Matches, Charles Kelley, Eric Paslay, Dave Barnes, Will Hoge, Chris
Janson and Danielle Bradbery.

During Sunday’s Off The Record event benefiting Second Harvest Food

musical guests for the elite event and fashion show. The runway lit up
during Vassar’s star-studded performance with STYX’s Tommy Shaw, which
included a captivating rendition of the rock hit “Blue Collar Man (Long
Nights).” More than 400 guests enjoyed Vassar’s performance at Sylvia
Roberts’ estate, best known for its appearance on ABC’s “Nashville.”
