American country superstars Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are also being sued over the song, The Rest of Our Life, which was performed by Hill and McGraw and co-written by Sheeran.

Sean Carey and Beau Golden are the Australian songwriters who filed the lawsuit, claiming the Sheeran co-written tune "blatantly copied" their 2014 song When I Found You, that was performed by Jasmine Rae, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"The copying is, in many instances, verbatim, note-for-note copying of original elements of the song, and is obvious to the ordinary observer," reads the complaint.

Co-writers of the song Johnny McDaid, Steve Mac and Amy Wadge are also named in the lawsuit along with Sheeran.
