It's officially time for all the #Lifelines across the globe to freak out! Your favorite boy-band is joining JoJo Wright to co-host this week's iHeartRadio Countdown! In Real life - comprised of Brady Tutton, Chance Perez, Drew Ramos, Sergio Calderon Jr. and Michael Conor - are quickly starting to take over the music scene with their catchy pop tunes and slick performance style. Managed by Johnny Wright - the mastermind behind some of the largest boy-bands in the world such as N*Sync and the Backstreet Boys - it's fair to say these boys have one of the best teams in the business.
The guys came together on the ABC reality television competition Boy Band in mid-2017, judged by Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice) of the Spice Girls, and heavy-weight producer Timbaland along with host Rita Ora.
Every week media personality JoJo Wright counts down the best of the best in Top 40 music with celebrity guests - and it's In Real Life's turn to come along for the ride! Make sure you click here to find out how you can listen on your local radio station and get their takes on what's charting.

Since beating out the competition and signing on the dotted line, their new normal has been working on the In Real Life debut album, adjusting to higher profiles as public figures and managing life on the road. Eyes Closed - their first official song - was released to critical acclaim and was shortly followed up with fan-favorite Tattoo (How 'Bout You). Check out the music video below:
Although selling out arenas and stuffing a shelf with trophies is great (which is sure to be in the band's future) the real mark of super-stardom in the digital age is a militant, dedicated fan army. Much like Ariana Grande's #Arianators and Demi Lovato's #Lovatics - fans of In Real Life from all around the world have congregated and coined themselves #LifeLines.
Searching the hashtag on twitter will bring up countless posts describing everything from how IRL's music provided inspiration through tough times to radio station song requests. When your followers are constantly campaigning for your music to play over the airwaves, you know you're on the right track.
In Real Life has a lot of exciting projects in the works. In addition to a radio tour and finalizing their debut album - they've been recognized by iHeartRadio and honored with a nomination for Best Boy Band at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards. Purchase tickets here or watch the ceremony live on TBS, TNT & TruTV Sunday March 11th at 8PM ET/ 5PM ET to see if the guys can pull through!
