In 2016, Vaus was chosen by Miranda Lambert as the first recipient of the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund which awards a female singer/songwriter a forty-thousand-dollar scholarship to attend Belmont University. Later that year, she was featured in Belmont’s Best of the Best Showcase. In 2017, Vaus signed a publishing deal with Black River Entertainment. She has opened for major country artists such as Jon Pardi, Old Dominion, Lee Ann Womack and Hunter Hayes and regularly plays shows and songwriter rounds at various Nashville venues, including The Bluebird Cafe. No matter where she plays or who it's with, for Vaus it’s always all about the song.
