Sally Berry began her musical journey at a young age traveling and singing with her family band. While growing up, she performed at many festivals, made appearances on the Grand Ole Opry, and recorded on the Grammy nominated album "Ragin' Live." Singing became a way of life, but it was not until 2009 that she began a career performing internationally with the group she led with her sister, Next Best Thing. The band recorded two projects and made appearances on radio and television shows such as Song of the Mountain, Woodsongs, and Music City Roots. They were also invited to perform at the prestigious Ryman Auditorium, SPBGMA, and for the governor at the Missouri State Fair. After graduating in 2011 from East Tennessee State University with a degree in Sociology, she came off the road and began teaching at ETSU as a voice instructor in the spring of 2012. Sally currently resides in Elizabethton with her husband, Hunter, two dogs, Waylon and Dolly, and a pig, who is lovingly known as Merle Hoggard.
