Smith took to Instagram to state his appreciation for Sheeran’s assistance on the track. Perhaps this on-stage collaboration was due to Ed Sheeran’s cover of the back song in June.

ALBUM REVIEW: Justin Goodrich ‘In Between The Panels’

We’d talked via social media a bit, and set up an in person interview so I could finally see what all the buzz was about with this emerging New Hampshire artist.
