In his honored career, he has guided; and in many cases discovered – world famous household names such as The Oak Ridge Boys, Roy Clark, Hank Thompson, Reba McEntire to name but a few.

He founded The Halsey Institute with educational programs at universities in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Oklahoma. He continued to develop the program in Nashville and beyond, collecting and curating interviews and information from leaders throughout the entertainment and music business.

Halsey has represented and guided the careers as a manager or booking agent – for nearly thirty members of the Country Music Hall of Fame, of whom countless ACM, CMA, GRAMMYs and number one singles and platinum albums have been awarded.

In 1990, he sold his agency and founded the Jim Halsey Institute, wanting to focus on helping others pursue their dreams and being successful in the music industry.

When he is not traveling, teaching, or writing, he lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with his wife Minisa.
