john berry christmas tour mill town music hall bremen

John Berry's 18th Annual Christmas Tour
December 20th - Saturday; 7:30pm
Mill Town Music Hall


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". But it was his stunning performance of the title track of the 1995 CD O Holy Night that led to his most enduring legacy. John Berry began performing a Christmas tour in 1996, and this year will mark his 17th consecutive Christmas concert series.
