John Berry Releases Official Video for “The Richest Man”

Grammy winning singer/songwriter, John Berry, has released a heartfelt and personal song from his latest project, Thomas Road. The endearing single entitled, “The Richest Man,” was released with an exclusive announcement in Billboard Magazine on Friday. The song is dedicated to his dad who taught him that the most valuable things in life typically had very little to do with money. Watch the official video here.

“We wanted this to be personal and tell a story,” Berry tells Billboard, “to create a meaningful video to honor those who enriched our lives with the values, and put priority on the things in life that truly have lasting meaning.”

“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,” writes Deborah Evans Price, Billboard Magazine.

“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.

Going back to his roots, the EP, “Thomas Road,” is named after the street he grew up on in Decatur, GA and where his passion and love for music took a hold of his desire to become a recording artist.

“I was fortunate to grow up in a home where music was always celebrated. The sounds of gospel, classical, country or pop were always present, but it was the latter years of elementary school into high school that were a significant time for me. Carole King wove “Tapestry,” John Denver came down a “Country Road,” Cat Stevens rode in on a ” Peace Train” and I began playing the guitar,” stated John Berry in the liner notes. “Listening to a white AM radio on the shop table in my dad’s garage helped me to dream bigger than who I was. The music drew me in and I had to be a part of it… it was a part of me. With my dad’s encouragement and help, we built a little studio in the basement of our house and I recorded my first four albums there. The fire inside me grew. I am beyond grateful for the inspiration I found in family, friends and music on Thomas Road. All those memories keep calling me back home to Thomas Road.”

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.”

The music is available on digital formats for streaming and download here and can be ordered from his website.
