Hozier and Ed pay homage to Elvis in visit to Graceland

Irish musician Hozier was joined by fellow chart-topper Ed Sheeran as he paid a visit to the home of 'The King'.

The Bray native took time out from his hectic US tour to enjoy a day out with the flame-haired singer at Elvis Presley's former home Graceland, in Memphis.

According to a post on British singer Ed's Instagram page, the talented duo also visited the music legend's grave.

In a recent interview, Take Me To Church singer Hozier revealed that his hit song has faced some backlash from religious groups.

"In America, I've never been approached or received hate mail, but I've had a few delightful open letters from pastors who have a few choice words to say," he said.

"But the song isn't about Baptist or evangelical Christianity, it references more to the Catholic Church," he told reporters.

The 25-year-old also opened up about his friendship with US popstar Taylor Swift, who is also a close friend of Sheeran.

He revealed that the Shake It Off singer has been "very supportive" in tweeting about his music has attended his concerts.

"I met her and she's very funny - she's got a good sense of humour."
