Eric Ethridge started to gain serious momentum in 2015 after the release of a series of orchestra country-pop covers, one of which garnered him a mention in Rolling Stone Magazine. Having built his brand on an electrifying stage presence and unique vocal ability, in early 2016 Eric was selected by a panel of 45 music industry professionals from across Canada to be one of the top 6 finalists for the CCMA Discovery Program. After a final showcase of the top 6 emerging artists, Eric then went on to win the 2016 CCMA Discovery Award and was deemed the top emerging country artist in 2016.
He has since become a new addition to The Feldman Agency and Watchdog Management. In 2017, Eric teamed up with Juno award-winning producer/songwriter Brian Howes to produce his debut single, “Liquor’s Callin’ the Shots”, peaked at #30 on the Canadian Country Charts, a rare achievement for an independent artist’s debut single.
Following the success of his first two singles (‘Liquor’s Callin’ The Shots’ and ‘Makin’ Me Crazy’), CCMA Award Winner, ERIC ETHRIDGE is back!
