Berry has one of the most powerful and distinctive voices in country music. It's a stunningly rich, majestic tenor that he uses to its full effect. His intimate solo acoustic performances have been enthusiastically received internationally with successful concert tours in Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia. An uncanny ability to tell a story in a song is what endears him to most audiences. With multiple gold and platinum albums and nominations from the Grammy Awards, the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music, he has clearly forged an appreciation from the music industry and fans alike.
 
Born in Aiken, S.C., and raised in Atlanta, Berry gained his first #1 single in 1994 with his signature song "Your Love Amazes Me." Berry has had several other Top 10 releases, all of which exhibit his incredible songwriting prowess.
