    OneRepublic’s Native album is the best album I’ve heard in MANY MANY years. A definite must-buy.

    The guy’s songwriting credits on wikipedia are insane. Many many pages of known hits.

    I still won’t watch the voice either though. :)

    I love Ryan Tedder! He is a song writing genius. I am so excited that he is doing this for the voice. I think that he should be a judge, he is way more musically talented than Ceelo.
