Rodeowave Entertainment’s award-winning singer/songwriter Phil Vassar wrapped up 2012 with a Christmas Tour promoting his Noel cd, and he has hit 2013 running with a brand new single, “Love Is Alive.” Co-written with Tom Douglas, ACM and CMA Song of the Year Award-winner for “The House That Build Me,” the mandolin-infused uptempo song was just shipped to radio.

“Tom and I had a blast writing this song,” said Phil, who is finishing a full album to be released later this year. “The message is really simple, and crowds have really been getting into this song everywhere we play it.”

Phil premiered the new single at a recent sold-out concert at one of his favorite haunts, Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago, where over 1000 fans packed the sold out venue for the nearly three-hour performance.”
