Amid the success of his own band's hit 'Counting Stars,' which topped charts all around the world, Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic was also co-writing many of the other big songs heard in 2013. That's probably why Billboard named him the most successful songwriter in the U.S. for the final quarter of 2013!
His songwriting credentials stretch as far as co-writing for Maroon 5's 'Love Somebody,' Beyonce's self-entitled surprise album in December and Ellie Goulding's 'Burn.'
In the UK, Tedder recently placed at number four on the list of most successful songwriters in 2013, notably with his contributions to James Blunt's single 'Bonfire Heart.'
OneRepublic is currently touring in Europe in support of their latest album 'Native' released last March. The band will kick off a U.S. tour this summer on May 28 at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in their native Colorado and will wrap up Aug. 28 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. On June 17, OneRepublic will be in Minneapolis for a concert at the Target Center!
