Songfacts®:

  • This was written for The Shires by Ed Sheeran. Ben Earle from the pair told HMV.com how the collaboration happened.

    "Our friend Sam Palladio, who you might know from the TV show Nashville, he got us tickets for Ed's show in Nashville. We went to the show and then to the aftershow party. I was surprised Ed actually knew who we were, I introduced myself to him and he said 'Yeah I know who you are, I've just pre-ordered your album' and I had to say 'I'm sorry Ed, I haven't pre-ordered yours yet'!"

    "He sent us a couple of songs and we loved 'Stay The Night'. It just spoke to us."
