Ed Sheeran is keeping himself humble after earning a Grammy nomination.  After the nominees were announced on Friday, the British singer-songwriter was asked if he felt worthy.  

Ed is nominated in the Best New Artist category this year, going up against Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, James Blake and Kasey Musgraves. 

He's also getting credit for his work on Taylor Swift's Red, which is nominated for Album Of The Year.  Ed says he enjoyed being involved on Red, but winning Best New Artist would "mean more" to him personally, because Taylor's album wasn't "technically [his] project." 

He adds that Best New Artist is "a good landmark to have for a British dude coming here for the first year."  It isn't Ed's first time as a Grammy hopeful, however.  Last year, his breakout song "The A Team" was nominated for Song of the Year.
