ACM would like to formally congratulate current ACM Artist Development student Ebony Day on winning the accolade of MTV Unsigned Artist for 2013.

Managed by ACM Music Business Degree student Lucy Tallant, Ebony fought off stiff competition from a host of other hopefuls to win the viewer-led search for the very best in new music.

Now with well over 150,000 subscribers Ebony has not only performed to live audiences in Nashville, Sydney and London, but has accumulated in excess of 19 million YouTube video views as well as continuing to further herself by studying at ACM, The Academy of Contemporary Music. Now voted MTV’s Unsigned Artist for 2013, Ebony is sure to continue her recent success thanks to her determination and hard work.

“If you don’t dream big what’s the use of dreaming. If you don’t have faith there’s nothing worth believing.”
