Songs And Stories With John Berry Preview Party Set For July 14

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Luken Communications, LLC and The Heartland Network, LLC, in cooperation with CJM Productions, announce the addition Grammy Award-winning country music star John Berry’s all-new television series, Songs and Stories with John Berry, to the Heartland lineup this summer. Specific dates and show times will be announced in the coming weeks.

A Songs and Stories with John Berry Preview Party will be held Friday, July 14, at the Tivoli.  In celebration of the launch of Heartland’s new series, GRAMMY-winning singer-songwriter John Berry will give an acoustic performance. 

The weekly, 30-minute show features a new celebrity guest each episode, filmed on location at Nashville's historic Douglas Corner, the same venue where Berry originally showcased prior to receiving his first major record deal. Songs and Stories with John Berry focuses on the song and the singer with both intimate performances and conversations.

John’s all-star lineup for the first season includes 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. 

“As an artist whose life and career direction was profoundly changed by a song, I am thrilled to bring the world an opportunity to see and hear firsthand from some of my friends and fellow artists the stories surrounding the importance of some of their favorite and most meaningful songs,” said Mr. Berry. “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.” 

Jeff Moseley, president of CJM Productions, said, “I'm very honored to be part of this wonderful series. John's bond with his special guests brings out the intimacy of their stories behind the songs that changed their lives. It's very special.” 

Matt Golden, Luken’s vice president of Programming, said, “Songs and Stories with John Berry is a fascinating window into the music that’s touched so many. The lineup that John and CJM Productions have assembled is packed with legendary talent, and John is a magnificent host, getting the best from each of them as they tell these stories through both discussion and performances. I can’t wait for the Heartland audience to get to see these amazing shows.” 

Heartland features programming comprised of syndicated and first run shows along with digitally restored content pulled from the vaults of Music Row. The program lineup includes WSM Radio’s Coffee, Country & Cody, Reflections with host Keith Bilbrey, Bluegrass Ridge, Country Standard Time, Music City Tonight, Texas Music Scene, Gaither Gospel Hour, Larry’s Country Diner, Country’s Family Reunion and several popular video blocks.
