Ryan Tedder Throws Down A Challenge For All You Listeners Out There

theworldseriesoftedder Ryan Tedder Throws Down A Challenge For All You Listeners Out ThereAfter deleting his semi-confused blog post about the brouhaha involving the similarities between his compositions for Kelly Clarkson and Beyoncé earlier, songwriter Ryan Tedder has released a statement defending his integrity, the merits of both songs, and Clarkson’s songwriting bona fides. Here we go…

“Already Gone” is one of the best song I’ve written or produced since “Bleeding Love” and stands tall on it’s own merits apart from “Halo”.


They are two entirely different songs conceptually, melodically, & lyrically and I would never try to dupe an artist such as Kelly Clarkson or Beyoncé into recording over the same musical track, the idea is both hurtful & absurd.


I think when people hear “Already Gone” they will hear what I hear-one of the greatest female vocalists on earth giving her most haunting and heart-breaking performance on a song she helped write.


I challenge people to listen and form their own opinions.



(Feel free to stick a sic over that whole thing, by the way.)


So that’s that, right? Or is it? Coincidentally (or not), “Already Gone” is now being offered as a free download on MySpace, which should at least be a good thing for the rubberneckers out there (and might even translate into more people finding out that All I Ever Wanted is a great record, Tedder contributions or not).
