The Strange Thing Ed Sheeran Did With Johnny Cash's Grammy

Yep, you read that right. Johnny Cash, who won Grammy Awards for “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Class of ’55: Memphis Rock & Roll Homecoming” (a tribute album for Elvis Presley featuring Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Roy Orbison), had one of his crowning achievements put to interesting use posthumously when Russell Crowe and Ed Sheeran decided to do shots out of the late singer’s prestigious award for the latter performance.

In a (virtual) appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Crowe opened up about the hilarious story and stated, “I bought [Johnny Cash’s Grammy] and I’m a mate of Ed Sheeran’s, right, and Ed has been here on the farm a couple of times. One night we’re in the bar… and he asked me, ‘Where is that Grammy of Johnny Cash’s?’ I went and got it and he [asked], ‘You know what we do with Grammys?'” Sheeran then responded, “Why do you think there’s a horn on the Grammy? Because we do shots!”

Crowe then dimmed the lights to “set the scene” for Corden and disclosed that he and Sheeran began taking shots of “Frank Sinatra Jack Daniels,” to which Corden responded, “That may be one of the best showbiz stories I’ve ever heard.” But wait, there’s more to Russell Crowe and Ed Sheeran’s boozy tales…
