Ed Sheeran 'would love to transition into country'

While speaking to Billboard at the 2023 ACM Awards in Texas on Thursday, the Thinking Out Loud singer teased a possible future in country music. "I talk about this to my wife all the time. I would love to transition into country. I love the culture of it, I just love the songwriting. It's just like brilliant songs." He further thanked his good friend Taylor Swift for introducing him to the genre, saying "I'd never really listened to country music as a kid growing up. It was only being on Taylor's Red tour and living in Nashville..."
