THE START OF A DREAM
In Nashville, renowned studio musician/producer Jimmy Nichols was brought in by Tom Roach to oversee arrangements, but when he recognized the potential of Robby’s talent, Nichols turned to Grammy and multi-award winning songwriter/guitarist Frank Myers (“I Swear,” “I’m Already There,” “Tomorrow”) and together they started helping Robby find is way through Nashville’s Music Business. “The minute we started working Robby, we threw out the rule book,” says Nichols. “Everything was so different with him from the beginning. He has the makings of a true artist.” Echoes Myers, who likens Robby’s sound. “He definitely has the ‘it factor.’ I really believe Robby has the potential to fill a void right now in country music.”
Their worked paid off as one of the songs they recorded broke TOP20 on US country radio charts, a rare accomplishment for an independent artist. Even more unbelievable is when Robby was invited to perform his single on the LATE SHOW with David Letterman. This unprecedented success opened the doors to incredible collaborations for Robby’s first album. Legendary producer James Stroud stepped in and helped Robby gather songs from Nashville’s top songwriters including Luke Laird, Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson, Shane McAnally and Sam Hunt just to name a few. As an added treat, country music giant, Vince Gill, plays an electrifying guitar solo on “ I Ain’t The Guy”.
