Sturgis, SD –  It’ll be “Just Another Day in Paradise” when Phil Vassar, one of the most recognized singer/songwriters in Nashville, takes the Buffalo Chip’s Wolfman Jack Stage on Monday, Aug. 6 just prior to a performance by the Chip’s self-proclaimed house band, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

“Vassar churns out infectious, feel-good melodies that capture the heart and soul,” said Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “He’s sure to bring ‘The Best Party Anywhere!’ to its feet. His music is the perfect backdrop for a summer music festival not soon forgotten.”

 

As a singer/songwriter, Phil has hit the Top 5 seven times with songs like “Carlene,” “Last Day of My Life” and “American Child” and topped the charts with “In A Real Love” and the perennial favorite “Just Another Day in Paradise.” Known as one of Nashville’s top tunesmiths, his songs other artists have taken to #1 include “My Next Thirty Years” by Tim McGraw, “She’s Right On The Money” by Alan Jackson, and Jo

Dee Messina’s “Bye, Bye” and “I’m Alright.” New artist David Nail had a hit with Phil’s “The Sound of a Million Dreams,” which Billboard named the #1 song in their Top 10 Country Songs of 2012.


The Southern Rock Gods Final Farewell 

Lynyrd Skynyrd is bringing their “Last of The Street Survivors’ Farewell Tour” to the Chip to offer fans a proper goodbye. One of the longest standing Buffalo Chip traditions includes feeling the amphitheater shake with the roar of V-twins while hearing Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird” blast through the main stage speakers. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will bring their hits home to the Wolfman Jack Stage on Monday, Aug. 6.
