Bobby Hamrick has signed a publishing deal with Spirit Music Nashville.

“As soon as I heard Bobby’s music, I knew I wanted to work with him,” said Frank Rogers, Chief Executive Officer, Spirit Music Nashville. “He is a rare talent who weaves effortlessly between genres while writing, singing, playing and producing. The entire Spirit Music Nashville team is thrilled to get the opportunity to partner with Bobby.”

Hamrick has written songs for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill (“Roll the Dice”), Luke Bryan (“You Look Like Rain”), Lindsay Ell (“Always Kiss the Girl”), and many others. He is a singer, lyricist and producer/engineer and has also appeared as a session musician on Grammy-winning recordings and as a background vocalist on many hits.

“I couldn’t be happier to be making music with Frank, Derek Wells, Freeman Wizer and the rest of the team at Spirit,” said Hamrick. “I can’t wait to see what we do together!”

Since Frank Rogers’ appointment in May, Spirit Music Nashville has made quick impact with the formation of a JV with Platinum producer Derek Wells (also appointing Wells as Senior Director A&R Production) and earlier this month announced the signing of Jeremy Bussey. Other recent successes by Spirit Music Nashville and Fluid Music Revolution include ASCAP’s Song of the Year (“Body Like a Back Road” by Sam Hunt, Zach Crowell and Josh Osborne); SESAC’s Song of the Year (“It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To” by Billy Currington); CMA Song of the Year (“Blue Ain’t Your Color” by Keith Urban) and CMA Album of the Year (From a Room: Volume 1 by Chris Stapleton); and a publishing interest in ACM nominations for Song of the Year (“Whiskey & You” by Chris Stapleton); Single of the Year (“Broken Halos” by Chris Stapleton and “Drinkin’ Problem” by Midland) and Songwriter of the Year (Josh Osborne).
