In Nashville, renowned studio musician/producer Jimmy Nichols was brought in 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 his way through Nashville’s Music Business.
Their work paid off as one of the songs they recorded broke Top 20 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 debut 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.
Upon release, Robby's debut album was named a People Pic by People Magazine.
