Ed Sheeran Named Artist of the Year
Ed Sheeran is named Artist of the Year at the Music Biz 2018 conference’s Awards Luncheon, and the celebration will happen on May 17 at the Omni Nashville Hotel.
“Ed Sheeran has had a remarkable year that few artists will ever achieve, helping to push streaming even further into the mainstream with the record-breaking success of ‘÷’ on these platforms, while also making history on the Billboard Hot 100,” said James Donio, president of Music Biz. “While he has been a strong presence in the industry for several years, 2017 proved to be extraordinary. We are thrilled to have him join the ranks of previous Music Biz Artist of the Year winners Adele, Little Big Town, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Coldplay and Green Day.”
“This past year has been absolutely unbelievable, and I really appreciate this amazing recognition from Music Biz,” said Ed. “Of course, none of it would be possible without all of my incredible fans and the fantastic team behind me.”
