Round Hill Music has entered into an asset purchase agreement with Hall of Fame Songwriter Bob DiPiero. DiPiero has been responsible for an uninterrupted string of country music hits. One of Nashville’s most prolific and consistent songwriters, Bob possesses a humble drive to keep learning and stay relevant. He has had over 1,000 songs recorded by other artists, countless hit singles, and an astounding 15 #1 hits. His songs have been featured in TV shows, commercials and movies. In 2011 his song “Coming Home” from the Country Strong movie soundtrack was nominated for both an Oscar and Golden Globe Award for “Best Original Song in a Motion Picture.”
“I am so excited that Round Hill has acquired Bob DiPiero’s Love Monkey Music Catalog. It contains many of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member’s greatest hits in addition to the brand new single “Boys Like You” by Fancy, feat. Ariana Grande and Megan Trainer. It will be a blast to work with Bob and Leslie to exploit the many undiscovered gems that lie in this important catalog,” says Mark Brown, VP&GM Round Hill Music, Nashville.
Among his other countless awards are 50 BMI Million-Air honors, multiple Songwriter of the Year awards and 2 consecutive Triple Play awards for 3 #1 songs within a 12 month period. Bob is the originator of the CMA Songwriters Series and has served as its Host for 10 years, bringing Nashville’s finest songwriters and artists throughout the United States and overseas to Belfast, Dublin, London and Paris. In 2007, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and Nashville’s Walk of Fame.
