Then he signed with Arista Nashville and producer Byron Gallimore who had success with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw among others. Vassar's first single Carlene reached #5 on the Country Singles chart. Then Just Another Day In Paradise was Vassar's first number one country hit. The album Phil Vassar was certified Gold. Vassar wrote Just Another Day In Paradise with Craig Wiseman who wrote hits for Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney and he is still writing hits today. Vassar recorded three albums for Arista. His other number one hit was In A Real Love in 2004. Vassar recorded two albums for Universal South that just weren't as successful as his earlier CDs.
