My two best friends and I went to see Ed Sheeran last night, and it was hands down the most amazing concert I’ve ever been to. The concert was a part of a benefit for Musicians On Call, a charity that brings live music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. 100% of the ticket proceeds were donated to that cause.
It was held in a small banquet room in the upstairs of the Hard Rock Cafe, and there weren’t more than a couple hundred people there. Reasons I love Nashville: big stars like Ed Sheeran, playing in our small, intimate venues. It was a very up close and personal show, and his musicianship is absolutely stunning. I wish I could play my guitar like he does — it was incredible. That Brit knows how to put on a show.
He played for over 2.5 hours, and towards the end of the show, he came up to the middle of the floor and hopped on top of a table and did an a capella song, and then walked around us all. I locked eyes with him so hard I thought I was going to collapse.
Anyway, just another normal Monday night in Nashville.
