John Michael Montgomery has signed with Hallmark Direction Company for management representation. The move marks a return to Hallmark for Montgomery, who was represented by the company from 1992-2000.

When he left Hallmark in 2000, Montgomery initially took his management in-house with the JMM Company, and was later represented by the Erv Woolsey Agency.

Montgomery is preparing to record a new album and will also be filming a hunting and fishing television show that will air later this year.

In addition to touring, he will also oversee the second annual Hunting & Fishing Show in Bardstown, Ky., from March 9-11.

Among other clients, Hallmark also represents Montgomery Gentry, the duo made up of Montgomery's brother Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry.
