Country Music Hall of Fame Member Bobby Bare has joined the 117 Entertainment roster for exclusive publicity representation. Bare released his newest studio album, “Things Change” last week to a rally of support from fellow artists, industry and critics.
“Things Change” features 10 tracks written by Bare and a slew of talented songwriters including Mary Gauthier, Guy Clark and the producer of the project, hit singer/songwriter Max T. Barnes.
In a career that has been marked with recordings from writers such as the afore-mentioned [Tom T.] Hall, Mel Tillis (‘Detroit City’) and the late Shel Silverstein (‘Marie Laveau,’ among many from the late tunesmith), Bare has always had a knack for finding a great song,” states Chuck Dauphin, Billboard Magazine.
The album features a collaboration on Bare’s iconic hit, “Detroit City,” with Chris Stapleton. The song was written by Mel Tillis and Danny Dill and was originally released by Bare in 1963 and would become one of his most highly requested songs at live shows to this day. “Detroit City” won a Grammy in 1964 for ‘Best Country/Western Recording’ and is one of many Grammy nods for the country legend.
