American Soul was produced by Vassar and his longtime vocalist/guitarist and collaborator, Jeffrey Smith. Vassar and CMA/ACM Song of the Year winner, Tom Douglas, co-wrote the upbeat title cut, which makes reference to iconic American imagery. The unique album cover was painted by noted artist Jason Irwin, and is filled with classic Americana references - musicians, ice cream, classic cars, and nods to hunting, beer, sailing and more.
Given the title track, "American Soul," paints a wonderful historical picture of America, Vassar and team will promote the album with eight days of giveaways - all in the spirit of "American Ideals."* The week will be highlighted in print, radio, and online media. Celebration days include:
Philanthropy - 10% of album sales on 12/1 & 12/2 will be donated to St. Jude in support of Country Cares for St. Jude Kids, the radiothon program that has raised over $650,000,000 for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
