Phil Vassar Switches Record Labels

Phil Vassar has signed to Universal South Records after his previous label, Arista Nashville, agreed to release him from his contract. Vassar released Greatest Hits for Arista in 2006, which included the No. 1 hit, “Last Day of My Life.”
Vassar said, “I think that as artists change and grow musically, it’s important to shake things up on the business side, too. And a career mile marker like the Hits disc just makes the timing feel right to make a fresh start.” A new album is expected later this year.
