All this for just $20 a ticket!!

GA native John Berry was one of the hottest country music stars of the late 90's and early 2000s, producing a string of Number One hits including the Grammy winning and Country Music Association's Song of the Year "Your Love Amazes Me", plus "Standing On The Edge Of Goodbye", "She's Taken A Shine", "You And Only You", and "I Think About It All The Time". He has sold over 10 million albums in his storied career, and starting this summer you can watch him on the Heartland Network hosting an all-new television series, "Songs and Stories with John Berry", a brilliant showcase of intimate performances and conversations with celebrity artists including Billy Ray Cyrus, Clay Walker, Craig Morgan, Mo Pitney, Mark Wills, Billy Dean, Suzy Bogguss, Collin Raye, Lee Roy Parnell, Neal McCoy and Delbert McClinton.
