Round Hill Music and Baby Needs New Shoes have entered into a co-publishing agreement with songwriter/producer Jimmy Robbins. In addition, Round Hill Music acquired a portion of Jimmy Robbins’ existing catalogue of songs from Baby Needs New Shoes. Singer-songwriter Keith Urban is a partner in publishing outfit Baby Needs New Shoes.
With over one hundred cuts in just over three years, Robbins has notched five No. 1 songs, including Blake Shelton’s “Sure Be Cool If You Did,” “It Goes Like This” from Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban/Miranda Lambert’s duet “We Were Us,” “Whatever She’s Got” by David Nail, and “Beachin’” by Jake Owen. Robbins currently has a top ten on the country charts with Tim McGraw’s “Top of the World,” and most recently celebrated a No. 2 single with Chase Rice’s song “Gonna Wanna Tonight.”
“It is a real privilege to be able to work with a writer like Jimmy Robbins,” said Round Hill Music VP/GM Mark Brown. “Jimmy has a rare combination of abilities that make him so exceedingly talented. We welcome our new partners Joe Fisher and Keith Urban to the RHM family as well. We at Round Hill couldn’t be more excited about this collaboration.”
Robbins is a 2014 ASCAP Song of the Year award winner for “It Goes Like This” as the most performed song of 2014. He earned a 2014 CMA Triple Play award and was 2014 ASCAP Breakout Writer as one of 10 writers worldwide to be recognized.
Robbins received the special honor of being the sole opening act for President Barack Obama at the 2015 National League of Cities Convention in Washington D.C.
As a co-producer, Robbins earned a No. 1 with Canaan Smith’s “Love You Like That.” He also has co-production credits on Big Machine’s RaeLynn, as well as Thomas Rhett. Robbins is currently in the studio working with Valory Music Co. artist Levi Hummon.
