117 Entertainment Group Adds Management Division

Bobby Bare

117 Entertainment Group, which launched earlier this year under the direction of company president & CEO Zach Farnum, will expand into management with 117 Management.

Country Music Hall of Famer Bobby Bare, known for songs such as “Detroit City” and “500 Miles Away From Home,” signs on as the first management client. Management staffers will be announced in the coming weeks.

The company’s public relations branch has been reorganized under the name 117 Publicity, headed by VP Bev Moser. 117 Publicity represents artists including Chuck Negron, Jerry Lee Lewis, Lewis Brice, Logan Mize, Paul Bogart, Max T. Barnes, Scooter Brown Band, Darren Bessette Band, Nashville Association of Talent Directors as well as Bare.

“Bobby Bare is the quintessential country music legend. He paved paths for the Outlaw movement, is a Grammy-winner and Hall of Famer and has had over 50 country Top 40 hits,” said Farnum, adding, “Bare is one of the kindest and most respected people in the business. I’ve had an incredible and successful run working with him as his publicist and am humbled to move into this new role.”

“I’m so glad to have Zach Farnum representing me, I think he’s just using me as bait to get bigger, younger acts,” joked Bare.
