Pop Worlds Collide: Hunter Hayes Met Ed Sheeran At The 2013 CMT Music Awards! (PHOTO)

Ed Sheeran met Hunter Hayes at the 2013 CMT Music Awards!

Warning: The Battle Of Cute Male Musicians has arrived, and it comes in the form of Hunter Hayes meeting “Lego House” singer Ed Sheeran at the 2013 CMT Music Awards! And no, we don’t even care that Ed isn’t by definition “country” — but he DID cowrite “Everything Has Changed” on queen of country Taylor Swift‘s Red album so, yeah, bro can do anything and show up anywhere he likes! And even better, he can pose with Hunter any time he likes! Because (a) he’ll get appreciative glances from us and (b) NETWORKING. Werque those business cards, fellas.

Ed and Hunter posed for an adorable photo backstage at the CMTs, and now that Ed’s, you know, “a big deal in country music,” hobnobbing with country music’s elite might prove verrrry beneficial for his bank account! (Wait, is that crude??) Because from what we hear, writing a hit country song brings in the big bucks! Or, if you’re not into that interpretation, we can just take this photo for what it is: a portrait of two adorable, immensely talented, and vertically challenged musicians just bro-ing out! Either way, we really wish we were smack dab in the middle of that Hunter and Ed sandwich. Guess that’s what Photoshop is for!
