Phil Vassar and Lonestar recently released a new holiday video called “Not So Silent Night,” filmed at Vassar’s home in Franklin. This new single supports The Salvation Army, with 100% of the proceeds going towards the charity that assists more than 4.5 million people during the Thanksgiving and Christmas time periods.
The Salvation Army red kettle bells, a 127-year-old Christmas tradition, will be present at venues throughout “The Not So Silent Night Tour,” which kicks off in Biloxi, Miss. on Nov. 30 (full list of dates available below).
In addition to Vassar and Lonestar who appear in the video, you’ll see Jeanine Seely who plays the role of the grandmother.
Lonestar, comprised of Richie McDonald, Michael Britt, Keech Rainwater and Dean Sams, released their first Christmas album, This Christmas Time, in 2000.
Vassar, who has headlined Christmas tours since 2009, released his first Christmas album, Noel, in 2011. The ten-track collection, co-produced by Vassar and Dane Bryan, showcases four of the ACM award-winning and ASCAP Songwriter of the Year’s original songs, including the humorous “Santa’s Gone Hollywood” and “Big Ol’ Texas Christmas,” a duet with Asleep at the Wheel’s Ray Benson. Last Christmas season, he and Kellie Pickler headlined a sold-out holiday tour.
