The Vickie Vaughn BandOwensboro, KY -- Come on out to the International Bluegrass Music Museum for another fabulous evening of music, featuring the Vickie Vaughn Band. Now making her living as a full-time musician in Nashville, TN, Vickie originally hailed from Paducah, KY, where the young adult acoustic music scene is jumping. She and her stellar bandmates are performing 25 concerts in the Bluegrass Museum's "Bluegrass in the Schools" program in January, 2014. Centered on powerful vocals and poignant songwriting, the Vickie Vaughn Band blends tradition with youthful funk and energy.

The museum says, "We are so fortunate to have this example of a terrific band to inspire our students. And as for all you adults -- just wait and see -- come to this concert and you'll be uber-inspired, too!!!"

Vickie Vaughn started singing when she was knee-high to a grasshopper. At the age of 9, she was hired as a background vocalist at the Kentucky Opry in Draffenville, KY, where she grew to love Classic Country and Bluegrass. At sixteen she challenged herself to learn stand-up bass and after graduating high school she moved to Nashville, TN to study Commercial Voice at Belmont University. In 2010 she released her 4-song EP, which features acclaimed pickers and longtime friends Josh Williams and Clayton Campbell performing three Vickie Vaughn originals and Bob Dylan’s “Blowing in the Wind.” Touring fulltime, Vickie plays bass and sings with Valerie Smith & Liberty Pike and HanaLena, but she still finds time to pursue her solo career with her best friends.
