They're one of those bands that you've heard everywhere on the radio. In fact, every time we're in the car and a song of theirs comes on, Husbando asks me, "I love this song! Who sings it?" It's become a bit of a recurring joke, because 9 times out of 10 the answer is One Republic.

One Republic put out their first record,  Dreaming Out Loud in 2007. The album included the smash single "Apologize,"  which got them  a Grammy nomination. The band's sophomore album, 2009's Waking Up, produced three singles: "All the Right Moves," "Secrets" and "Good Life."

One Republic's third studio album Native, was released in March 2013 and produced the hit singles "If I Lose Myself," "Feel Again," "Love Runs Out," "I Lived" and their biggest song to date "Counting Stars," which reached #1 in 54 countries and has sold over 10 million downloads. Native sold over 5 million units worldwide.

My favorite was "Love Runs Out".  Anyway, they're coming to Kansas City to kick off their summer tour right.  According to Press Newswire:

Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated quintet, OneRepublic announced with Honda today they will tour North America this summer when they embark on the 2017Honda Civic Tour, promoted by Live Nation.
