Country music artist Dan Davidson has won the 2017 Edmonton Music Prize.

The prize, worth $10,000 this year, was awarded to Davidson for both his latest record, Songs for Georgia, as well as his achievements in the past year.

Davidson scored a top-charting hit with his song Found — which propelled him to be the #1 charting indie artist in Canada.
