Best Colorado Showing at the Grammys (2012)

Ryan Tedder

With as many hit songs as he's written for his own band, OneRepublic, as well as a slew of other pop stars, including Beyoncé, Kelly Clarkson, Jordan Sparks, Leona Lewis and Gym Class Heroes, it's surprising that Ryan Tedder didn't already have a mantel full of Grammys. But while he's been nominated before, Tedder couldn't claim a Grammy until now, when he won for his contribution to Adele's breakthrough album, 21, which all but owned the Grammys this year. Something tells us this is just the first of many to come for the Colorado musician.
