Westhaven invites the community to enjoy an evening with country music hitmaker


Southern Land Company (SLC), a national award-winning real estate developer, and The Westhaven Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity, are proud to announce that country music artist Phil Vassar will be the headline performer for the 11th annual Porchfest music festival at Westhaven, an SLC master-planned community in Franklin, Tennessee, on Saturday, October 1.


Vassar, a renowned country music songwriter, and performer built his career writing songs with other famed musicians like Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, and Jo Dee Messina. Vassar’s vocal talent and piano-playing skills have also earned him 10 No. 1 singles and more than twenty-five Top 40 hits, including “When I Love You,” “Just Another Day in Paradise,” and “Carlene.” With an opening performance by local Americana folk-rock band People on the Porch, Vassar’s upcoming musical appearance is sure to bring a lively concert full of his classic, soulful talent to the conclusion of this year’s festival.


Porchfest is an annual community music festival that invites Westhaven residents and the local community to enjoy live music performed by various artists and groups on the front porches of homes and various parks throughout Westhaven, ending with the headliner performance near the lake at Magli Green Park in Westhaven’s Village Center. Proceeds from ticket sales to the evening concert benefit The Westhaven Foundation.
