2018 WINNERS


GRAND PRIZE

Girl On Fire

Eric Ethridge
Sarnia, ON, Canada

Canada has produced many great artists, and Eric Ethridge is no exception. The past few years have seen Eric Ethridge’s career gaining momentum, including being mentioned in Rolling Stone, winning the CCMA Discovery Program, charting on the Canadian Country charts, and most recently debuting on SiriusXM’s The Highway. His much-anticipated debut EP was released in July of 2018 and peaked at #1 on the iTunes Country chart and #3 on the all-genres chart.

His impressive catalogue of songs, including the winning song “Girl On Fire," proves that he is an artist who consistently stamps his songs with the same melodic and vocal prowess. A doctor-turned-country-artist, Ethridge has a strong connection with his fans and listeners, evidenced by his songs having streamed over three million times since the album was released. This new country artist is one of the most exciting artists Unsigned Only has been privileged to discover, and we are proud to honor him with the 2018 Grand Prize.

Congratulations to Eric Ethridge!
