KELLY                      VAUGHN

Home: Welcome

Guitarist / Multi-Instrumentalist / MD


From the hills of East Tennessee, to the ends of the earth - that's where this six string instrument has taken me. 

I began my journey at a young age learning classical guitar, but studying my classic rock heroes on the side.

When it came time to go to college, I attended Middle Tennessee State University. There, I studied Music Business and Classical Guitar.

Immediately after graduating, I joined Ernie Haase and Signature Sound's band. That is when my career truly began. I was blessed to have the opportunity to travel all around the world; US to UK, India, Australia, Romania, Europe.

In 2013, I was nominated with EHSS for a Dove Award.

That same year, I moved to Oregon and married my beautiful wife. Soon after, I joined Jackson Michelson's band (Curb Records, Nashville).

And in 2018, I began working with 4th + Main.

From its formation in 2003, Ernie Haase has built Signature Sound into one of the most popular and beloved quartets in all of Southern Gospel music. The group has traveled all over the world, from Latvia and India to South Africa, UK and New Zealand, Australia, Romania events all around North America, TV appearances on ESPN with NASCAR, multiple NBA appearances singing our National Anthem, and even a tour of historic American theaters in support of the EHSS Broadway project. Along with many appearances through the years on the widely regarded Gaither Homecoming Tour, EHSS quickly gained an international platform in gospel music.
Ernie Haase & Signature Sound is both GRAMMY(R)-nominated and GMA Dove Award-winning, a radio favorite in the United States and internationally, and a leader in CD sales and long form music video sales--with several RIAA(R)-certified Gold(R) and Platinum(R) DVDs.

Hailing from Corvallis, Oregon, Jackson Michelson built a strong west coast following for years before landing a record deal with Curb Records. He has released multiple songs to national country radio and XM Radios' The Highway. 
He has toured all across the United States and recently toured to the UK, winning over a new region of fans.
He has opened for some of the biggest artists in country music -  Willie Nelson, Blake Shelton, Dwight Yoakam, Frankie Ballard and Lee Brice.

With youthful, high-energy stage performances and pure vocal blends, 4th and Main quickly established themselves as the new crossroads in country music by combining a modern sound with a classic, four-part approach to making music. Chase McDaniel, Randy Austin, Chris Chavez, and Blake Whitlock turned heads in the genre with musical direction from ten-time GRAMMY® nominated and three-time BMI Music Award-winning producer Wayne Haun.

They toured from their home base in Nashville across the US as far as Alaska and even to Norway. 

After dissolving in 2020, 4th + Main's lead vocalist, Chase McDaniel pursued a solo career and was quickly signed to major label Big Machine in Nashville, TN.
