Following two years where the world was rocked by a pandemic that took musicians off the road, John Berry has new music and a fresh, new outlook. 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 She’s 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 country charts, 6 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 She’s 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), 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. I’m 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 I’m always all dressed up and ready to go.”
2022 kicked off with John releasing his new faith-based album, “Find My Joy” on March 25th on Gaither Music, and his touring included dates in churches in support of this new project along with his normal solo and band dates and ending the year with his 26th annual Christmas tour. 2023 has John playing theaters, churches in both solo and band performances as well as celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the release of his debut album John Berry on June 7th and wrapping the year with his 27th annual Christmas tour.
