Even the members of The Lumineers are puzzled by the success of their song "Ho Hey" and their sudden rise to fame after years on the road. The song has long legs and is not only getting played alongside Nicki Minaj and Maroon 5 on the radio, it's been ruling Spotify and working its way into popular culture.
Now his band's caught up in a wave that could crest at the Grammy Awards, and he says he's still trying to sort out why.
"And that's not where it came from," he said. "The feelings that made it come out were not necessarily about finding love, but losing love or missing love. I think that's what's interesting about songs. You can come from a dark place, but people see light in there and they can identify different parts of it."
