Nashville, Tenn. (May 17, 2016) – After a three-year recording hiatus, Grammy-nominated country music star John Berry is back with new music. Today, Berry announced the release date for his newly recorded album, What I Love The Most (Mansion Entertainment / Sony RED). The CD will be available for purchase on Friday, June 3, 2016.

“This new music means a lot to me, largely because the fans funded the project. This is my second successful Kickstarter project,” says Berry. “The songs I chose to record are reminiscent of the same sound and lyrics from the early days of my career. It was those solid foundational tunes about love, life and family that breathed life into my career early on and has sustained me over the years. I hope my fans that have supported me from the beginning love and relate to this record. And I hope the new ones enjoy it too!”

The 10-track album is produced by John and his wife, Robin Berry and showcases tunes written by many famed songwriters including Neil Thrasher, Tom Shapiro, Ashley Gorley, Regie Hamm and Wendell Mobley as well as four John co-wrote with Richard Fagan, Brian Mabry and Chris Wommack.

Berry adds, “I’m beyond excited to release this new music and bring it to the fans. It’s a new time in the music business and technology allows me to be closer to my fans and interact in new ways. You know, God just keeps blessing me. There are new opportunities coming at every turn.”
