Country Musician Inducted into Special Hall of Fame Posted Tuesday, May 31, 2005 - 10:36 am A Nashville recording artist who lives in Mauldin has been inducted into the Traditional Country Hall of Fame, and two of his songs are on the sound track of a Hollywood movie now available on DVD. Joe Berry, 50, formerly of Gray Court, who often tours with Grand Ole Opry legend Ernie Ashworth, was inducted April 29 into the Hall of Fame. The Internet-based Hall of Fame is "devoted to returning country music back to its roots that traditional sound." Although Berry is a country artist, two of his songs are on the sound track of "Bad Trip," a movie starring hip-hop artist Coolio and directed by Chris Palzis and Erik Fleming, which was released May 3 on DVD and available in stores. One song, the country ballad "Don't Wake Me," was co-written with Berry's wife, Brenda, owner of Alterations and More in Fountain Inn. The second song, "No Bridge I Can't Burn," was written by Don Goodman, John Wesley Ryles and Frank Dicus. Berry thanks hall of fame owner Bob Timmers, for opening the door for him. Berry tours often, most recently appearing in concert in Bainbridge, Ohio, where he performed during The Paint Valley Jamboree with Grand Ole Opry star Charlie Louvin. Berry will perform July 2 in Texas, and plans 30-40 concerts this year before picking up the pace in 2006. He performs with his group, Joe Berry and the Berry Pickers, which include Steve Walker on Steel, Frank Moore on Bass and harmonies, Ed Campbell on lead, Todd Spencer on Drums and of course Joe Berry does the lead vocals and piano. The busy musician also occasionally broadcasts live on his Web site www.joe-berry.com, and is writing a novel, "Up on Sweeten Creek." Meanwhile, he continues to write songs with Goodman, Chris Anderson and Royce Porter, and promotes the revival of the traditional country sounds that ounce flourished on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry.

In 1994 Joe recorded "Someday You'll Look Back" which rose to number 13 on the country music charts.
