One of Nashville’s most prominent and popular songwriters, Bob DiPiero can claim more than 50 million spins at country radio−with the BMI “Million-Air” Awards to prove it. His major cuts include Neal McCoy’s “Wink,” Reba McEntire’s “Little Rock,” Tim McGraw’s “Southern Voice,” The Oak Ridge Boys’ “American Made” and George Strait’s “Blue Clear Sky.”
To say he’s prolific is an understatement. In fact, he’s had more than a thousand of his songs recorded. One of his newest tunes is “Boys Like You,” recorded by pop newcomer Who Is Fancy, featuring Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor. And there’s more to come, as DiPiero signed a new publishing agreement with Kobalt this year.
In this conversation with MusicRow Publisher/Owner Sherod Robertson, DiPiero reveals his favorite place to write, explains the feeling of hearing artists interpret his songs, and offers some really smart advice to someone thinking about becoming a songwriter.
