ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Among the most promising of the younger bluegrass acts around (Nashville), the Vickie Vaughn Band sports a traditional five-piece lineup with some endearingly nontraditional features — most notably, the leadership of the surprisingly big-voiced Ms. Vaughn. A western Kentucky native and Belmont graduate, Vaughn’s got an outgoing personality and a fistful of original material that springs from her sturdy bass playing and heads off in a variety of directions, while banjo man Justin Hiltner shows there’s more to an arch-top banjo than the Ralph Stanley sound. Mandolinist Casey Campbell has drawn growing attention for his deft mix of creativity with knowing nods to tradition. Rounding out the lineup are guitarist Zach White and fiddle gal Maggie Estes, who, like their colleagues, are sharp enough players to have plenty of other cool gigs keeping them busy. Still, they all seem focused on making this particular lineup work, and the concentration’s paying off.”

-Jon Weisberger, International Bluegrass Music Association Chairman of the Board - 2012 IBMA Songwriter of the Year

September 2014 found the Vickie Vaughn Band weathered and energized from their first solid season of touring and nominated for the IBMA Momentum award for Band of the Year. Throughout the year they crossed the entire eastern US with shows ranging from 333 feet underground in McMinnville, TN to the Lower East Side of New York City, bringing their old country-influenced, high energy, song-centered sound to thousands of music fans of all ages. In January they visited twenty-nine West Kentucky schools, bringing the International Bluegrass Music Museum’s Bluegrass in the Schools program to thousands of kids. Their summer on the road included ROMP (2014 IBMA Event of the Year) in Owensboro, KY, Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN, and Bluegrass on the Grass at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. Now as 2015 unfolds, the momentum only grows. With their debut recording – produced by Grammy-winner Ronnie McCoury – set to drop in on September 25th and a tour schedule that includes Delfest in Cumberland, MD and their second appearance at ROMP, the group is excited to bring their Nashville-steeped Bluegrass to many more diverse and discerning audiences. Their shows are engaging and fun, infused with a youthful energy and the obvious camaraderie of five close friends. “I can’t believe some of the amazing experiences I’ve had in my career in music,” Vaughn says, “But nothing even comes close to how happy and at home I feel while playing and creating with my best friends. I feel so lucky!”

Currently rehearsing and shoring up new originals, instrumentals, and covers for a reinvented set, you can find the VVB around Nashville at their favorite spots, the Station Inn, Music City Roots, and Carter Vintage Guitars. And in their off time you can catch them across the globe playing with such artists as Keith and Kristyn Getty, Bryan Sutton, Becky Buller, and Roland White.

“It is SO hard to develop a novel bluegrass sound and cohere a band together into a unit, and the VVB has made enormous progress in a short time. I can’t wait to hear what they sound like next month and the next.”

-Craig Havighurst, co-producer, Music City Roots
