GRAMMY Award-winning country star John Berry continues to celebrate the 25th anniversary since signing his first record deal and has recently charted at #30 on the Music Row Breakout Charts with the single, “Beautifully Broken,” which is featured in the soundtrack for the upcoming movie of the same name. Berry has placed 20 singles on the country hit parade charts, six of which went Top 5 as well as a No. 1 on the Billboard and Radio & Records country charts. He has earned numerous Gold and Platinum records. Berry’s co-written “A Mind Of Her Own” and “Kiss Me In The Car” introduced him to radio audiences in 1993. Then, “Your Love Amazes Me,” “What’s 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. “Your Love Amazes Me” earned Berry a 1995 GRAMMY nomination. In 1996, he scored a GRAMMY win for his participation in Amazing Grace: A Country Salute to Gospel Vol. 1. Berry took “Change My Mind” into the country music Top 5 in that same year. “She’s Taken A Shine” became an even bigger hit in 1997. The same year, he was nominated for CMA Vocal Event of the Year for “Long Haired Country Boy” with Charlie Daniels and Hal Ketchum. Both fans and the media took note when “There He Goes” was released as a 1999 duet with Patsy Cline. Berry’s two most recent albums, What I Love The Most and his holiday album, Christmas, are both available now on his website as well as iTunes and other digital retailers.
