    John Berry John Berry has a new outlook, a new address, and a new beginning. The singer-songwriter rose to stardom on the country charts of the 1990s with such mega hits as Your Love Amazes Me, Standing on the Edge of Goodbye and Shes Taken a Shine. His annual Christmas tours brighten the holidays for thousands, as does his electrifying rendition of O Holy Night. During his star-making decade, John placed 20 singles on the county charts, six of which went Top 5, with Your Love Amazes Me, scoring a #1 on the Billboard and Radio & Records Country Chart as well as Standing on the Edge of Goodbye and Shes Taken a Shine earning the #1 slot in Radio & Records. He has earned multiple Gold and Platinum records over the years. John was nominated for the ACM Top New Male Vocalist in 1994, won a Grammy Award in 1996 for his participation in Amazing Grace: A Country Salute to Gospel Vol. 1, was nominated for another Grammy in 1995 for his smash hit Your Love Amazes Me and was nominated for the CMA Horizon Award and Top Male Vocalist Award in 1995. In 1997 he was nominated for Vocal Event of the Year (for Long Haired Country Boy with Charlie Daniels and Hal Ketchum), and in 2013, John was nominated for the Mainstream Country Male Artist by the ICM Awards. And thanks to the miracles of modern technology, he even sang a duet with the late, great Patsy Cline. I love what I do, with a passion not seen in quite some time. Im hopeful and excited about the future. I love singing and always will. I have a bus, an incredible stage presentation, a great band, hands-on management team and Im always all dressed up and ready to go. He and his family moved back to Music City after several years in Georgia, and in 2016, John is pursuing a touring and personal appearance schedule that is more active than ever. Given his wide range of music and number of releases, John is fortunate in that he can book a solo show with just himself and guitar, a small-band acoustic show, or a full-band engagement and has more than enough hit material to captivate a crowd and deliver an evening full of musical memories. Johns enduringly powerful performances draw on a lifetime of making music and living life. Born in South Carolina and raised in Georgia, he began playing guitar at 13, performing shows at age 14 and making records at age 19.By the time I was 17, I knew that music was what I wanted to do with my life, and he has done it well ever since. Between 1979 and 1990, he recorded and marketed six albums on his own labels. The Graduation Song, which he wrote during his senior year in high school, became a perennial favorite at graduation ceremonies. It appeared on two of his early collections. Those early discs and Johns strong regional popularity attracted attention on Music Row. Capitol Records signed him to his first major label contract in 1992. Berrys co-written hits A Mind of Her Own and Kiss Me in the Car introduced him to radio audiences in 1993. Then Your Love Amazes Me, Whats In It for Me and You and Only You thrust him to stardom in 1994. Standing on the Edge of Goodbye, I Think About It All the Time, and If I Had Any Pride Left at All were all major hits the following year, with Standing on the Edge of Goodbye earning John the coveted 1995 Grammy nomination. But it was his stunning performance of the title track of the 1995 CD O Holy Night that led to his most enduring legacy to date. John began doing special Christmas tours that year and 2016 marks his 20th anniversary holiday concert tour. He has big plans to celebrate and involve the fans like never before for this anniversary celebration. He has also issued three more Christmas-music collections. If O Holy Night is all that anyone remembers of me, thats fine with me, he comments about his perennial Christmas popularity. It is a truly inspired piece of music. Happily, there were more successes to come. The hit Change My Mind earned John a Top-5 spot on the Country music charts in 1996. Shes Taken a Shine became an even bigger hit in 1997. Both fans and the media took note again when There He Goes was released as a 1999 duet with Patsy Cline. In 2002, Berry returned to making records for his own company, Clear Sky Records. Songs and Stories, a double CD, was issued that year. In 2003, John Berry released his I Give My Heart collection and its critically applauded wedding anthem Will You Marry Me. The disc also contained his versions of such classic love songs as Time in a Bottle, If, Love Look What Youve Done to Me, Faithfully, Lady and Lets Stay Together. I Give My Heart inspired still another popular concert series, The Love Tour. In 2008, Those Were the Days, was released, marking Johns return to mainstream country music. He created his first Christian-music CD in 2011. In 2012, John published the combination book and CD, again titled Songs and Stories. Over the years he has continued to tour steadily. We just have a great group of fans who welcome us every year. They are always there. In 2015, John launched a crowd-funded Kickstarter project that proved very successful. Overwhelmed by the fan response, John assembled an all-star studio team and cut both a Country album entitled What I Love the Most and a new 5-song Christmas EP This Christmas Night. Blessed with the ability to make the music he wanted to make (and not what a label dictated) allowed John the time to write and create what many music critics who have heard bits and pieces are saying could be his best, most complete project yet. Im excited to release this new music and bring it to the fans in 2016. Its a new time in the music business and technology allows me to be closer to my fans and interact in new ways. You know, God just keeps blessing me. There are new opportunities coming at every turn. With time, Ive learned that the road to fulfillment is doing what I was called to do, love to do, and then doing it the best I can, regardless of the circumstances. And for me, that is making music and singing for people.

    John Berry Country's romantic vocalist par excellenceDescriptionIf there's a country music lover in your life, you can show the love with a pair of tickets to see John Berry at The Ark! This romantic tenor shows just how strong Nashville vocals have become over the last decade or so, and his "Your Love Amazes Me" was a megahit of the 1990s and is going to be around more or less forever. John sings his hits like "She's Taken a Shine," interprets other romantic classics, and is bringing the brand-new and much-awaited Sony-distributed album "What I Love the Most" to Michigan. Summer is the season for love. Yield. Why fight it?

    Mr Berry. We met backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in 2000.I asked if I could enter your dressing room and get an autograph. While signing your name u ask me where I was from and I explained I was in college Majoring in Country Music Down in Miss.Johnny Russell walk by about that time and we all talked about it. I don't expect you to remember me but I will forever remember your kindness you and your wife showed me that day. When you finished your set on stage you walked passed me while you where leaving and said we will be seeing you Kid. I just wanted to let you know I have signed with SESAC as a writer/publisher and I haven't given up on being an artist. God Bless Jonathan McDowell
