‘Songs and Stories with John Berry’ Season
2 will soon be coming to U.S. television, as a new series of tapings wrapped up
a few days ago.

The tapings took place over four nights in
the Natchez Hills Winery at The Fontanel, on Whites Creek Pike in Nashville.
The intimate venue, seating no more than a hundred guests, was an ideal setting
for the laid-back show.

In each show, Berry talks with his featured
guest who shares personal stories about the music that has changed their lives
and inspired them to become the artists they are today. Each artist also joins
Berry and the band to perform some of those songs.

one of the tapings, Tracy Lawrence recalls a decision that changed his life. He
had two years of college under his belt in Louisiana and was earning money in
tips while playing in bars in the evening. “I decided, if I don’t go to
Nashville now, I’ll never go,” he says. He took the $700.00 that he’d made in
tips over the past few weeks, packed his guitar in his car and headed to
Nashville. Speaking about the music he is making now, he says, “I’m not chasing
hits anymore. I’m going back to what I was passionate about.”

Each of the artists shares similar stories
about their lives and their music, often revealing personal experiences that
are connected to their songs.
