Phil Vassar is the Artist of the Month on GAC, where he recently debuted a special, "Origins: Phil Vassar — Prayer Of A Common Man."See Also:
The program captures Phil’s private concert at Nashville’s Ocean Way Studios, where he recorded his first two albums, plus his return trip to his hometown, Lynchburg, Va., including the home he referenced in the lyrics of his hit "American Child."
"I went back to 419 Lakewood Street, and now Lynchburg College actually owns the house," he told the national radio show GAC Nights: Live From Nashville. "I got to meet some fans who were actually at the house taking pictures as we were shooting our GAC special, which was actually a weird thing, weird timing. And I got to see my principal, my coaches, a lot of teachers I had. I went to my old high school. I went to some of my old haunts. It was really great to see old friends and family."
If you missed the premiere, you can still catch Phil’s Origins installment. The show airs again at 8 p.m ET Monday, May 19; at midnight, 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Tuesday, May 20; and at 9 p.m. ET Thursday, May 22.
