GRAMMY AWARD WINNING COUNTRY SUPERSTAR JOHN BERRY INKS ARTIST ENDORSEMENT DEAL WITH AIRPLAY DIRECT
Posted on July 6, 2016
AirPlay Direct is pleased to announce that we have recently signed an Artist Endorsement Agreement with Grammy Award winning artist John Berry. This new creative partnership will serve to extend the John Berry brand, and his global radio distribution footprint for his new release What I Love The Most, his new greatest hits package, John Berry Hits, as well as his personal catalogue.
John Berry says
, "I am so glad I found out about AirPlay Direct. My manager first brought me the idea and we took a meeting with them and I knew when the meeting ended we needed to be involved.
Since we began working together the experience has been nothing short of amazing. We uploaded my new album as well as my Hits album and boom!.....instant acceptance at radio. Not just acceptance but true love!
We are now preparing to upload my entire catalog and I cannot wait to see what happens with that! No question, they do what they say they will do and my team works well with theirs."
John is currently enjoying impressive success at global radio… with both of his new releases!
During his star-making decade, John placed 20 singles on the Country Hit Parade, 6 of which went Top 5, with Your Love Amazes Me, scoring a #1 on the Billboard Country Chart. He has earned multiple Gold and Platinum records over the years. John was nominated for the ACM Top New Male Vocalist in 1994, won a Grammy Award in 1996 for his participation in Amazing Grace: A Country Salute to Gospel Vol. 1, was nominated for another Grammy in 1995 for his smash hit Your Love Amazes Me and was nominated for the CMA Horizon Award and Top Male Vocalist Award in 1995. In 1997 he was nominated for Vocal Event of the Year (for Long Haired Country Boy with Charlie Daniels and Hal Ketchum) and in 2013 John was nominated for the Mainstream Country Male Artist by the ICM Awards. And thanks to the miracles of modern technology, he even sang a duet with the late, great Patsy Cline.
“What can you say about John that has not already been said," says Lynda Weingartz – CEO, AirPlay Direct.
"He is a tremendous talent on every level; but the best part about John is that he is a true and genuine southern gentlemen. We are honored to welcome John into the AirPlay Direct family.”
