Mention his name to just about any country music lover and the response will likely be, "What an awesome vocalist!" Between 1979 and 1990 John recorded and marketed six albums on his own Clear Sky Records label. Those early discs and John Berry's strong regional popularity attracted him attention on Music Row. Capitol Records signed him in 1992 and it was there that he had a string of hits, including "Your Love Amazes Me," "Standing on the Edge of Goodbye," "I Think About It All The Time," "Change My Mind," "If I Had Any Pride Left At All," "Kiss Me In The Car," "What's In It For Me," and "You and Only You."
Nominated for numerous CMA, ACM and Grammy awards in the 1990’s, John was one of the top-selling country artists of that decade, with one album designated platinum & two gold. Of his 19 songs on Billboard's Hot Country Songs, he had 1 #1 and 6 additional top-ten hits. But it was his stunning performance on the 1995 CD O Holy Night that led to his most enduring legacy. John began doing a Christmas tour in 1996 and this will mark his 17th consecutive year. The concert includes a seasonal repertoire that includes both holiday songs and traditional carols. It concludes with his hit single, "O Holy Night."
Moving into a new phase in his career, John's tenor voice remains an instrument that is able to touch all our hearts.
