American country music artist Phillip George Vassar or better-known as Phil Vassar first entered the country music industry in the late 1990s as a songwriter. As such, he has penned various songs recorded by other country music artists. The most prominent among them were Tim McGraw, Jo Dee Messina, Collin Raye, and Alan Jackson. Two of the four artists recorded three songs that topped the country charts. These songs are enumerated below.

1. “Bye, Bye” by Jo Dee Messina

Phil Vassar co-wrote the song with Rory Michael Bourke.  It was released in 1998 as the first single of Jo Dee Messina’s album I’m Alright. The song made Messina famous when it reached No. 1 both on the US and Canadian country charts. This tune also appeared on Vassar’s 2006 album Greatest Hits, Volume 1. In 1999, Vassar was named by ASCAP as Songwriter of the Year for this song.

2. “I’m Alright” by Jo Dee Messina

Released in 1998, this song was the second single as well as the title track from her album I’m Alright. Following her first big hit “Bye, Bye”, “I’m Alright” was also a chart-topper making it her second consecutive No. 1 song. Vassar has also covered the song on his Greatest Hits, Volume 1 album.

3. “Right on the Money” by Alan Jackson
