Phil Vassar

     Phil Vassar is an American country music singer-songwriter and pianist. Vassar made his debut on the American country music scene in the late 1990s, co-writing singles for several country artists, including Tim McGraw (”For a Little While”, “My Next Thirty Years”), Jo Dee Messina (”Bye, Bye”, “I’m Alright”), Collin Raye (”Little Red Rodeo”), and Alan Jackson (”Right on the Money”. In 1999, he was named by ASCAP as Country Songwriter of the Year.
     Phil Vassar sings party-friendly country music with a kicked-back drawl and melodies more catchy than a box of fishing lures. Phil Vassar wrote for Tim McGraw, Jo Dee Messina, Colin Raye and Alan Jackson before singing his own saucy country pop songs. Engelbert Humperdinck, lord of the lounge crooners, discovered Phil Vassar singing in a smoky club in Nashville, Tenn. Phil was a frat rat in college. In the 80’s he was a member of the Eta Kappa chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity. Vassar once co-owned a piano bar outside Nashville, Tennessee, where he used to bartend and perform his own material.
     Later that same year, Vassar was signed to Arista Nashville as a recording artist. His debut album, Phil Vassar, was released in early 2000; it produced five hit singles on the U.S. Billboard country singles charts and was certified gold in the United States. He followed it in 2002 with American Child, Shaken Not Stirred in 2004, and finally Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 in 2006 before Vassar left the label for Universal South Records. His first album for that label, Prayer of a Common Man, was released in early 2008.

Keith Urban

     Keith Lionel Urban (born 26 October 1967, New Zealand), is a New Zealand-born Australian Grammy- and ARIA-winning country music singer. Urban began his career in Australia, having moved there at an early age; in 1991, Urban released a self-titled debut album, and charted four singles in Australia before moving to the United States in 1992. Eventually, Urban found work as a session guitarist before founding a group known as The Ranch, which recorded one studio album on Capitol Records and charted one single on the Billboard country charts.In 1996 he appeared on the tribute album to Hank Marvin and The Shadows “Twang” playing the instrumental “Dance On”.
     Urban’s sound may be rooted in the past, but his New Country is all about the present, replete with semi-programmed beats. As southern as the man’s music sounds, Keith Urban was born in New Zealand and grew up in Australia. Urban was hamming it up as a youngster performing in plays and musicals, years before finding his voice in country music. Urban credits pilfering through his father’s twangy record collection as the main influence on his heartfelt country musings. Before going solo, Urban was in a country band called the Ranch. Following his success, they re-released their album.
     Still signed to Capitol, he made his solo American debut in 1999 with the album keith urban; certified platinum in the U.S., it also produced his first American Number One in “But for the Grace of God”. His breakthrough hit was the Number One “Somebody Like You”, from his second Capitol album Golden Road (2002). This album also earned Urban his first Grammy Award win for “You’ll Think of Me”, its fourth single and the third Billboard Number One of his career. 2004’s Be Here, his third American album, produced three more Number Ones, and became his highest-selling album, earning 4× Multi-Platinum certification. Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing was released in 2006, earning Urban’s second Grammy for the song “Stupid Boy”, while a Greatest Hits package entitled Greatest Hits: 18 Kids followed in 2008.
