John Berry has a new outlook, a new address and a new beginning. The singer-songwriter rose to stardom on the country charts of the 1990s with such mega hits as “Your Love Amazes Me,” “Standing on the Edge of Goodbye” and “She’s Taken a Shine.” His annual Christmas tours brighten the holidays for thousands, as does his electrifying rendition of “O Holy Night.”
During his star-making decade, John placed 20 singles on the county hit parade. He earned Gold and Platinum records. He was nominated for a Grammy Award, CMA Awards and ACM Awards. And thanks to the miracles of modern technology, he even sang a duet with the late, great Patsy Cline.
But when the hit records faded, John quietly left Nashville and headed back to his native Georgia. "The fall is hard. For a time it left me angry and disillusioned. I was fortunate because singing was all I had ever done and all I knew to do. I buckled under and made it work. It was then that I became the President and Janitor of JB Music. I am proud to say I have survived and grown because of it. Now I wish I could go back and talk to my younger self. I enjoy myself and making music. I love what I do. I’m realistic about who I am. I’m hopeful and excited about the future. I refuse to go away, because I LOVE singing and always will. I have a bus and sound and lights, and I’m always all dressed up and ready to go.”

Your words are born not spoken, I shall Wish for you, Remembering However when we could be warm together.

The Don S. McClure Show Live - The Pursuit of bringing Jazz and building stronger networks
Tonight’s: Topic The Pursuit of Jazz Our special extended show will take a look at the music of Jazz. Audio Recording by from Billie Taylor so this is jazz and interpretations from those who played and created jazz to those who study the history of jazz from the BBC perspective.
I grew up in a home with older brothers who loved the music of jazz, and I became aware of many names like Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Stan Gets, Monk and Dakota Staton, Kenny Burrell and Joe Sample just to name a few and of course Louis Armstrong. But there were many others my older brothers introduced me because they played in a jazz group themselves. My older brother Marvin played in his own Jazz group and made a recording of Fly me to the Moon. My Brother Roland also played Jazz while he created many of his artist drawing and while he entertained many of his friends in our home. My mother and father loved Louis Armstrong and Sarah Vaugh but my favorite singer was Dakota Staton and Nancy Wilson as I grew up hearing the music of Jazz.
The audios are part one of The History of Jazz and part two the BBC look at Jazz and Louis Armstrong.
