Round Hill Music has entered into an asset purchase agreement with Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Bob DiPiero to acquire DiPiero’s Love Monkey Music catalog.

DiPiero has had over 1,000 songs recorded by other artists, as well as 15 No. 1 hits. 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,” said Mark Brown, VP/GM of Round Hill Music, Nashville. “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 Trainor. It will be a blast to work with Bob and Leslie [DiPiero] to exploit the many undiscovered gems that lie in this important catalog.”

Among DiPiero’s accolades are 50 BMI Million-Air honors, multiple Songwriter of the Year awards and two consecutive Triple Play awards for three No. 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. In 2007, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and Nashville’s Walk of Fame.

DiPiero was recently featured as part of MusicRow‘s podcast series.
