John Berry Kickstarts New Album Project With A November-ish Release Date

John Berry is headed back into the studio to record a full album of (roughly) ten new songs on a project he'd like to release in November of this year- and he's looking to his fans to help be a part of it ahead of time.

Berry has gone to Kickstarter to help fund the new project, in which he announces:
"Wow! It has been a great year! Robin and I were given the chance to move to Nashville last summer and it has been awesome! I have been renewed musically and taken advantage of every opportunity I could to submerse myself into the songwriting world. I cannot recall spending this much time writing since I last wrote Standing On The Edge Of Goodbye in 1995. I have truly enjoyed this resurgence of creativity.
In the next few months I will be recording a brand new CD and want to give you the opportunity to play a major role in making this project successful. My last recording was funded through Kickstarter and now I'm back 4 years later using it again. Kickstarter is a great tool designed to help independent artist like me, fund creative projects by involving family, friends and fans in the process.
My new recording project will be a two disc set. Disc one will contain great songs that I have found from incredibly gifted songwriters here in Nashville, and songs I have co-written with friends. Disc two will be five songs of Christmas/inspirational music that I have created my own arrangements to. These are songs I love to sing and can't wait to incorporate into this years Christmas Tour.
A budget and goal for the project has been thoughtfully created. In regards to the goal, the Kickstarter policy is "all or nothing." If 100% of the target amount is not met, then I do not receive any funds and the project will not be funded. Pledged amounts on your credit card / debit card will only be charged when the campaign is over and the funding goal of $50,000 in 40 days has been met. I have faith the goal will be met!
I have surrounded myself with an incredible team of people. Brent Mason, world renowned guitarist, will be collaborating on this project with me. We have met and begun pre-production on arrangements and instrumentation. We have also put together a band of some of the greatest players ever! I can't wait for you to hear it! It's the heart and soul of who I am and what I am called to do."

Pat Green Announces Release of Home on 8/14

Artist: Pat Green
Album: Home
Label: Independent
Release Date: 8/14/15

Pat Green has announced that his new CD Home will become available on August 14th, 2015. His first new set of tunes in almost six years, the project is ready for release as soon as the singer inks a new deal. It includes collaborations with Sheryl Crow, Delbert McClinton, Marc Broussard and another Texas troubadour, Lyle Lovett, with whom Green duets on the project's first single, "Girls From Texas,"
"I've been getting crap from just about anybody, from every dimension — whether I'm making a record independently or for a record company, which is when people say I've sold out," the singer-songwriter told Rolling Stone Country. "But I've never made a record that I wasn't totally invested in and that I didn't like the sound. When you make records with big producers or big record labels, those records are really bombastic — that's just the way they are going to sound. That was a wonderful experience, but making this next record, I'm still the same guy. I'm still writing most of the songs, still putting things together in an arrangement that I like…. I'm proud of this one. It feels organic."
