I've been a Phil Vassar fan since the beginning, but this Christmas album blew me away! It's really Jazzy - very classy. His renditions of the holiday standards are beautiful, and his original songs range from serious and sentimental to downright hilarious ("Santa's Gone Hollywood" is completely irreverent!)
If you're a Phil Vassar fan, you need this, If you're a fan of holiday music you need this.

A must!!!


All I can say is WOW, WOW, WOW!

I am not a huge country music fan, but I love Phil Vassar and since I like Christmas music too, I thought this would be a "nice" album to have. What an understatement. From the moment the first track began until the last note of the final track I was amazed. It is not just good, it is everything one could want in a Christmas album.

There are at least three tracks, that I will be adding to my all time top christmas favorites.

The only regret that I have it that is was over too soon. Double the length would not be enough.

If you like Christmas music and country music with a heart of soul and jazz this is a MUST. Seriously.

Stupid as it gets


Never thought I hear the word "sex" in a holiday song

About Phil Vassar

Contemporary country singer Phil Vassar made his name as a chart-topping songwriter before landing a record deal and becoming a hitmaking artist in his own right. Vassar was born in Lynchburg, VA, and won a track scholarship to James Madison University, where he first began to take music seriously. He moved to Nashville, learned to play piano, and sang his original material in clubs. One club patron and fan brought Vassar's demo tape to his father, crooner Engelbert Humperdinck, and Humperdinck wound up recording "Once in a While," a song Vassar had co-written with a bartender friend, in 1996. Vassar's songwriting career blossomed from there, as he landed a publishing contract with EMI and penned hits for Collin Raye ("Little Red Rodeo"), Alan Jackson ("Right on the Money"), Tim McGraw ("For a Little While"), Jo Dee Messina ("Bye Bye," "I'm Alright"), and BlackHawk ("Postmarked Birmingham"). He signed a record deal of his own with Arista in 1998 and was named ASCAP's Country Songwriter of the Year in 1999. His self-titled debut album was released in 2000, and the lead single, "Carlene," shot into the country Top Five; its follow-up, "Just Another Day in Paradise," went all the way to number one. "Six-Pack Summer" also reached the Top Ten, and yet another single from the album, "That's When I Love You," became Vassar's third Top Five hit in early 2002. Phil Vassar was certified gold for sales of half a million copies, and its follow-up, American Child, was released later in 2002. The title track gave Vassar yet another Top Five single. Prayer of a Common Man appeared in 2008 from Universal South. ~ Steve Huey
