Sheeran has been nominated for Grammy awards consistently since 2013. His love ballad "Thinking Out Loud" took home the Grammy award for "Best Pop Solo Performance," where Sheeran bested Kelly Clarkson's "Heartbeat Song," Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do," Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" and The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face."
In the coveted "Song of the Year" category, Sheeran also took home the 2016 Grammy for writing "Thinking Out Loud" with fellow Welsh singer-songwriter Amy Wadge. He triumphed over Kendrick Lamar's "Alright," Taylor Swift's "Blank Space," Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" and Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again."
Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" was also in the running for "Record of the Year," but lost to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk."
In the summer of 2014, Sheeran performed at The Paramount in Huntington and praised the venue for being "the best in the world."
