First Single Off Thomas Road Dedicated to His Dad and Fathers Everywhere
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 5, 2019) — John Berry, a Grammy winning singer/ songwriter, has released “The Richest Man,” off his latest project, Thomas Road. The poignant, heartfelt and personal song penned by Berry, Liz Hengber and Will Robinson was produced by Chuck Howard, who produced all of the familiar Berry hits over the years, as well as last summer’s Top 30 “Beautifully Broken” from the hit film of the same name.

The endearing single entitled, “The Richest Man,” is available for radio airplay via CDX released in advance of Fathers Day, along with an aggressive grass-roots social media campaign.

“I never tire of hearing this most fundamental message of country music — happiness doesn’t lie in wealth, but in love. Few have the heart and soul to deliver it as effectively as this guy. Brilliantly crafted, wonderfully melodic, exquisitely poetic and flawlessly produced.” MusicRow Magazine DISCovery by Robert K Oermann

“It’s one of those rare recordings that no matter how many times I hear it, my eyes moisten. And John has never sounded better telling the story.” Mike Terry, 650-AM WSM / SiriusXM Prime Country
“The lyric paints a picture of two men — one who is wealthy by the world’s standards but dies alone, and the other an average Joe, who is rich in love, family and community respect,” Deborah Evans Price, Billboard Magazine
“A tribute, a life lesson, and a song-sermon all wrapped up in one of the most beloved voices in country music. The Richest Man by John Berry makes Father’s Day a year round gift to all of us. This is a classic!” Devon O’Day, Nashville Today host-650AM WSM
“It is with a grateful heart for a dad that loved me and showed me what was important in life that I dedicate this work to my father, Jim Berry and to other fathers that walked before and after him, that strove to make their children’s lives full and rich in what really mattered, faith, family, and friends,” said John Berry.
It is no surprise that John Berry quickly sells out venues all over the country. The Entertainment Nexus once described the award-winning entertainer as “one of the most remarkable voices in music.”
