Ed Sheeran to move to Nashville

, 6:15 pm PT by | 6 comments

English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will be relocating to the United States soon!

Due to his upcoming mammoth North American tour with Taylor Swift, which will span 58 dates, Ed will be taking up temporary residence in Nashville, TN. Nashville is widely known as the "Music City", and several musicians have had their musical beginnings in Nashville (eg: Dolly Parton, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Reba McEntire, Hot Chelle Rae, Jimi Hendrix).

"I'm moving to the States for a bit," announced the charismatic red-headed Brit. "I love New York but it's too similar to London. I still don't own a place in London, I own one in the country in England because I like having the escape."

Ed, who penned several songs for pop boy-band One Direction, added, "I wouldn't want to be in the city. LA is cool but you find a lot of douche bags there. I'd rather be surrounded by people in cowboy hats that spit tobacco."

"Nashville is wicked. It's like a proper music community but it's also quintessentially American. You bump into people there with cowboy hats who spit in jars and call you 'boy'. I just love that."

Ed also plans to work on his sophomore album, following the phenomenal success of his debut album, +, which included hits like "The A Team", "Drunk" & "Lego House". British newspaper The Sun reported that Ed Sheeran went house-hunting with Taylor Swift's father. He will be Taylor's support act during her North American which begins in Omaha, NE on Mar 13, 2013 and ends in Nashville, TN on Sept 21, 2013.
