Amanda Hunt-Taylor and Chuck Jones wrote the lyrics of the song “Your Love Amazes Me”. American country music singer John Berry was the one to record it. Released in January 1994 as the third single from the album John Berry, it became his only chart-topper on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks. Additionally, it was also the first of two number ones for him on the RPM Country Tracks charts
Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Berry listened to all kinds of music. Unknowingly, he did not think that this would eventually influence his own sound. In the 1980s, he played often in the college town of Athens, Georgia. Here, it started all. He grew a fan base before he ever released a record. In 1993, he released his self-titled major-label debut, which put him on the radar of country fans all over the United States.
Berry has recorded more than twenty studio albums, including one platinum album and two gold albums. In his career, Berry has also charted nineteen songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The songs were the number one single “Your Love Amazes Me” from 1994 and six additional Top Ten hits – “What’s In It for Me”, “You and Only You”, “Standing on the Edge of Goodbye”, “I Think About It All the Time”, “Change My Mind”, and “She’s Taken a Shine”.
Did you know that in the same week his tune hit number one in 1994, John Berry underwent brain surgery? Yep, that is right! After he collapsed at a show, doctors found a cyst in his brain. Fortunately, this procedure was successful and Berry lived to celebrate his number one hit.
In 1996 by pop singer Michael English, released a cover version of “Your Love Amazes Me”. Additionally, Andy Childs also recorded it on his 1993 self-titled album and released it as the B-side to his 1993 single “Broken”.
A Country Weekly article talked about Berry, “John’s greatest strength is his pure, soulful tenor”. A 2006 interview with The Entertainment Nexus described him as “one of the most remarkable voices in music”.
