Ed Sheeran To Receive Music Biz Artist Of The Year Award

The Music Business Association will honor Atlantic Records’ multi-Platinum, Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran with its Artist of the Year Award at the Music Biz 2018 conference’s Awards Luncheon on Thursday, 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 Sheeran. “Of course, none of it would be possible without all of my incredible fans and the fantastic team behind me.”
