Country Music Hall of Fame Member Announces First Release in Five Years on HYPERMEDIA Nashville

Chris Stapleton Joins Legend on Iconic Song “Detroit City”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 29, 2017) – Country Music Hall of Famer and GRAMMY® award-winning living legend Bobby Bare will release THINGS CHANGE May 26, which features a collaboration with Chris Stapleton. The album is Bare’s first studio project in five years and is available for pre-sale now at

THINGS CHANGE will feature 10 tracks written by Bare, Mary
Gauthier, Guy Clark and the producer of the project, hit
singer/songwriter Max T. Barnes. THINGS CHANGE will be released by HYPERMEDIA Nashville and BFD through RED Distribution.

The album features a special collaboration on Bare’s iconic hit,
“Detroit City” with Chris Stapleton adding his unique vocals. The song
was written by Mel Tillis and Danny Dill and was originally released by
Bare in 1963. It would become one of his most highly requested songs to
this day and won a GRAMMY® in 1964 for Best Country/Western Recording.

“This is a special collection of songs to me, not just another
record. Great songs from Mary Gauthier, a song I co-wrote with Guy Clark
that turned out to be his last and a song that my buddy Hoyt Axton
inspired me to write called ‘Things Change.’ That’s the title of the
album and the first single. Things do change but my love for songwriters
and the fans never, ever will!” said Bobby Bare.

“I hit the road as a lead guitar player with Bobby Bare when I was 20
years old. To imagine I would produce my hero all these years later is a
dream come true. We had so much fun touring the world in the 1980s. We
laughed until we hurt! That’s what it was like in the studio with Bare
on this album. He has a wicked smart song sense, and a delivery that
will cut you to the bone. Bare is a true giant,” said Max T. Barnes,
President of HYPERMEDIA Nashville.
