Country music hitmakers Phil Vassar and Lonestar support The Salvation Army with the release of their new Christmas single “Not So Silent Night.” Taste of Country exclusively premiered a first listen to the track that “finds the musicians getting their retro groove on with a swinging jazz vibe, with Vassar and Lonestar singer Richie McDonald trading vocals to describe a fun holiday party” (Sterling Whitaker).
Fans can look forward to the forthcoming music video starring Vassar and Lonestar. To purchase “Not So Silent Night,” click HERE.
100 percent of the proceeds from the single will benefit The Salvation Army, which 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).
Throughout each stop on the multi-city tour, audiences will have the chance to hear Christmas standards, non-traditional holiday tunes as well as the artists’ hits. The Salvation Army will be selecting one person from their volunteer community to join the men on stage for a special Christmas collaboration (details to follow). Fans can also purchase a VIP experience add-on that includes a meet and greet with Vassar and Lonestar, signed poster and special keepsake.
