Ed Sheeran und Taylor Swift sind während ihrer gemeinsamen Red Tour durch Amerika extrem zusammengewachsen. Eine enge Freundschaft ist entstanden.

Emotionaler Geburtstagspost

Am Mittwoch machte ließ die Singer-Songwriterin ihren Gefühlen gegenüber Ed, in Form eines herzzerreißenden Geburtstagsgrußes auf Instagram, freien Lauf und postete: „Ich habe die Momente geliebt, in denen er in meine Garderobe stürmte, um mir einen neuen Song zu präsentieren.“

Das sei für die Sängerin mittlerweile zu einer Gewohnheit geworden, die sie nicht mehr missen will.

 

Looking back on the highlights of my life, there's a moment I'll never forget from a day in London about two years ago. I was in town to play the O2 and I was out shopping on my day off. My friend Ed Sheeran met up with me in this little shop where I was buying ballet shoes. He walks in and says "you have to hear this new song. I think it's the best one I've ever written." And then, as usual, he pulls out his phone and gives me headphones. I sat there on a bench in that store and heard 'Thinking Out Loud' for the first time, as little kids were picking out tutus and leotards next to us. Little did we know it would go on to be first dance song at countless weddings all over the world, become Ed's biggest hit, and eventually go on to win him Song of the Year at the 2016 Grammys. Ed and I had been on tour together all year on the Red Tour and we saw each other almost every day. I lived for the moments he would burst into my dressing room with a new song to play me. It happened so often that it became normal, and I don't think he ever knew how much it meant to me that he wanted me to hear his songs first. I don't think he ever knew how inspired I was by his drive and passion to constantly create new art. But it's his 25th birthday today, so I'm saying it now. You deserve everything you have, and everything you will continue to achieve, Ed. And an extra congratulations to the incredible Amy Wadge on your two Grammys.

Eine Tour schweißt zusammen
Um dem Rotschopf zum 25. Geburtstag zu gratulieren, blickte Taylor Swift zurück auf die gemeinsam verbrachte Monate. Während der Tour durch Amerika haben sich die beiden fast jeden Tag gesehenen und prächtig verstanden.

 

Für Swift war es eine Ehre, seine Songs immer als Erste hören zu können: „Ich glaube er weiß gar nicht, wie viel mir das bedeutet.“

Erfolge

Beide Künstler räumten bei den Grammys 2016 richtig ab. Neben den Auszeichnungen für das "beste Album" und dem "besten Musikvideo" für Taylor Swift, gewann Ed Sheeran einen Grammy für die "beste Solo-Performance".
