RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Phil Vassar brings his piano-based country music back to The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday.

Known as one of country music’s top hit makers, Vassar has landed in the Top 5 seven times with his songs "Carlene," "Last Day of My Life" and "American Child" and was at the top of the charts with "In A Real Love" and the long-standing favorite "Just Another Day in Paradise."

"If you love great entertainment and you have never seen a Phil Vassar show, then you are missing something fantastic," a recent Vassar concert-goer raved. "Country music's 'Piano Man' has a way of connecting with the audience that I haven't seen since Garth Brooks."

Known as one of Nashville’s top tunesmiths, singer-songwriter Vassar also has written hits for many artists who've had number-one honors. These include Tim McGraw’s "My Next Thirty Years," Alan Jackson’s "She’s Right On The Money" and Jo Dee Messina’s "Bye, Bye" and "I’m Alright."

Jessica Lynn will kicking off the night. She's been called the "country girl from New York" and the "new woman in country" and "Shania’s successor."

Before the show, visit Ancient Mariner, 451 Main St., Ridgefield, and enjoy a free glass of house wine or draft beer with dinner when tickets are presented. The media sponsor for this event is 105.5fm KICKS Today’s Best Country.

Tickets are $60 for orchestra seating, $55 for mezzanine/balcony. Call the box office at 203-438-5795 or order online here.

The show begins at 8 p.m.

The Ridgefield Playhouse is a nonprofit performing arts center at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street.
