In a move unique to Music City, the Tennessee Titans tapped award-winning singer/songwriter Phil Vassar and his band to perform at every home game during the 2012 NFL season. Several of Vassar's friends joined him on the new Titans Party Stage at LP Field, and Grammy-winning Blues artist Keb' Mo' helped him wrap up the season on December 30, 2012.
In addition to Keb' Mo', Phil welcomed Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steve Cropper, who wailed on some Blues. The "Redneck Woman" Gretchen Wilson left her country roots for a moment and tore up "Barracuda" and Zepplin's "Rock & Roll" at the December 2nd game, and actors Chip Esten and Jonathan Jackson, from the hit ABC series "Nashville," also entertained.
"This could only happen in Nashville, and we're thankful the Titans let us be a part of their game day entertainment," said Vassar. "We had a blast every game and we really appreciated Keb' Mo', Gretchen, Steve Cropper and everyone who come up to join in the fun."
During halftime of the Titans' final 2012 game last Sunday, Don MacLachlan, Executive Vice President of Administration and Facilities for the Tennessee Titans, presented Phil with a framed personalized team jersey with a plaque that read, "Thank you for your time and commitment during the 2012 season. Your talent and energy enhanced the game experience throughout the season!"
