Another fan posted on Twitter: “Just discovered the dude who plays Bjorn Ironside on #vikings is a country singer and actually has one of the best country songs I have heard in a long time! #talented.”
The song was posted just after a video Ludwig had retweeted, which was an interview titled Vikings Alexander Ludwig Says Goodbye to Bjorn.
Fans may be wondering whether the king of Kattegat has indeed been written out of the series so he can focus on his singing career.
Ludwig has said Bjorn will be back in the next half of the series, in some form or another, but did not confirm whether Bjorn had died in the battle against the Rus.

The last we saw of Bjorn was when he was laying lifeless on a beach after being stabbed by his brother Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen).
There are many theories as to whether he is still alive, and fans believe he could still return as his name Ironside was given to him due to his superhuman strength in battle.
Throughout the series Bjorn has faced the brink of death but always manages to recover and comes back stronger each time.
Fans will have to wait until the end of the year to find out if he will be returning to the series, or he has left to pursue his music dream.
Vikings season 6 will return to Amazon Prime and History in December
