At the House of Blues after watching Johnny Cash perform, Rick Rubin (Def Jam, American, Columbia Records) suggested she make a record with June Carter Cash. Hamilton shopped June's demos around to all the major labels but there was a reluctance to sign this country legend. This is when Vicky started her own label Small Hairy Dog and gave June a label to call home. Her CD, Press On was released in 1999 and earned a Grammy Award in 2000. As Hamilton later stated, "I didn't plan on starting a record company, I just knew that June's music needed to be heard."

Vicky released her autobiography, Appetite For Dysfunction in 2016 and is currently on book reading tour around the world. The success of the book has brought TV interest.
