After three decades, Bob DiPiero remains at the top of the country songwriting profession. He has penned dozens of major hits, including numerous #1s ranging from the Oak Ridge Boys' "American Made" (1983) to Tim McGraw's "Southern Voice" (2010). Raised in Youngstown, Ohio, DiPiero moved to Nashville in 1978 and soon achieved songwriting success with Reba McEntire's "I Can See Forever in Your Eyes." He also wrote McEntire's "Little Rock," Shenandoah's "The Church on Cumberland Road," Neal McCoy's "Wink," George Strait's "Blue Clear Sky," and Easton Corbin's recent hit "Lovin' You Is Fun." DiPiero is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and is highly regarded for his humorous storytelling.
