Ed Sheeran: Nashville's gain is Britain's gain

Apparently, Ed Sheeran has upped sticks and moved off to Nashville:

Sheeran said he wanted to live somewhere that incorporates a lot of music, has a lot of countryside and a relaxed atmosphere — and isn’t filled with rude people.

“And Nashville is full of very, very nice people,” the 22-year-old said.
Sweetly, although perhaps inadvertently, Sheeran acknowledges that he's a tiny, tiny fish in a big pool:
“I don’t think people really care in Nashville,” Sheeran said. “Even if they knew who you were, I don’t think they’d care. They’d just be like, ‘Eh.’”
For Ed, it's just like home:
Sheeran said his new home reminds him of Framlingham, a rural area in England where he grew up before moving to London.
It's true. Here's Nashville:
And here's Framlingham:
Virtually impossible to tell the difference, isn't it?
