racking up hits on the radio long before he even began his own recording career that has seen the release of six albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, ACM’s Top New Male Vocalist and sold-out shows across the country.

Vassar’s songwriting career blossomed in the mid-’90s when he landed a publishing contract with EMI and penned hits for Collin Raye (“Little Red Rodeo”), Alan Jackson (“Right on the Money”), Tim McGraw (“My Next Thirty Years”, “For a Little While”), Jo Dee Messina (“Bye, Bye”, “I’m Alright”), and Blackhawk (“Postmarked Birmingham”). He signed a record deal of his own with Arista in 1998 and was named ASCAP’s Country Songwriter of the Year in 1999.

Vassar will headline Paperfest’s Event Production Systems Stage on Friday July 15, 2022 at 9:30pm. The free concert is sponsored by Brew Pub Pizza.

Live music starts at 5 p.m. with supporting acts to be announced as the event approaches.

Paperfest presented by Community First Credit Union returns to Sunset Park in Kimberly July 14-17, 2022.

The 34th annual free-admission event boasts three stages of great live music, balloon glow, carnival rides, food trucks, sporting events, car show, family fun, and much more.

The music is great and the beer is cold – the best part is the proceeds from Paperfest are donated back into the community through various Fox Valley nonprofit organizations.
