Stars join John Berry for ‘Songs and Stories’

Stars join John Berry for ‘Songs and Stories’

Season 2 hits TV in April

By Preshias Harris for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show

‘Songs and Stories with John Berry’ Season 2 will soon be coming to U.S. television, as a new series of tapings wrapped up a few days ago.

The tapings took place over four nights in the Natchez Hills Winery at The Fontanel, on Whites Creek Pike in Nashville. The intimate venue, seating no more than a hundred guests, was an ideal setting for the laid-back show.

In each show, Berry talks with his featured guest who shares personal stories about the music that has changed their lives and inspired them to become the artists they are today. Each artist also joins Berry and the band to perform some of those songs.

 Berry feels that ‘Songs and Stories with John Berry’ is a title that sums up the essence of the show. “For me and so many others, songs help us express what we feel inside and stories are the inspiration for the song that lies within,” he says.

New shows start airing in April

The season kicks off in April with the following shows scheduled:
Episode1, Week of April 02: Mac Macanally;
Episode 2, Week of April 09: Rhonda Vincent;
Episode 3, Week of April 16: Steve Dorff;
Episode 4, Week of April 23: Ryan White;
Episode 5, Week of April 30: John Schneider.

Episodes airing in May and June will feature Radney Foster, Terri Clark, Tracy Lawrence, Daryle Worley, Pam Tillis, Exile, and will wrap up with a ‘New Artists’ Show’ with Sean Thomas Berry, Preston James and Blane Howard. A ‘Best Of’ compilation show will air highlights of Season 2 during the week of June 25.

 At one of the tapings, Tracy Lawrence recalls a decision that changed his life. He had two years of college under his belt in Louisiana and was earning money in tips while playing in bars in the evening. “I decided, if I don’t go to Nashville now, I’ll never go,” he says. He took the $700.00 that he’d made in tips over the past few weeks, packed his guitar in his car and headed to Nashville. Speaking about the music he is making now, he says, “I’m not chasing hits anymore. I’m going back to what I was passionate about.”

Each of the artists shares similar stories about their lives and their music, often revealing personal experiences that are connected to their songs.
