Phil Vassar is back with an all-new episode of “Songs from the Cellar”
as the award-winning singer/songwriter opens the doors to his personal
cellar to showcase wine and spirits, share unforgettable stories and
collaborate with special guests, including Sarah Darling who’s featured
in the latest episode.
Darling is a talented singer-songwriter who has played numerous times
at the Opry and has had recent radio success with songs such as “Home to
Me,” and “Little Umbrellas.”
In the first of a two-part episode, Vassar sampled Darling’s
irresistible macaroons, paired with a 2011 St Urban-Hof Splatise
Riesling before they collaborated on her new tune titled, “Cowboy Ride,”
featured on Darling’s upcoming album. The second part will be released
in the coming weeks.
Future episodes will incorporate artists, songwriters and wine
connoisseurs as featured “Songs from the Cellar” guests. Each episode
will intertwine storytelling and music with wine and food pairings. The
wine, beer, bourbons and other cocktail favorites featured during the
shows are inspired by the guests themselves.
“We have so much fun filming Songs from the Cellar”, says Vassar.
“It’s really special to sit down and chat with some of the best artists
in the industry and hear their stories. It also doesn’t hurt you get to
drink some wine while doing it!”
Vassar plans to incorporate several wineries and vineyards in his
2016 American Soul tour, as well as multiple wine-themed events.
