Broadway grew up in Marne, Michigan, a small town surrounded by farms. Perhaps it was the smell of cow manure that made him the eccentric character he is today.
Broadway’s introduction to Country music came through the 90’s hit, Boot Scootin' Boogie. He says, "I played the Boot Scootin' Boogie cassette single so many times that mom threw it away and said it was an accident."
He is a huge advocate for the American Cancer Society. His mother passed away from Lung cancer in 2008, and father has battled three different types of cancer.
When not in the studio, Broadway enjoys cartoons, Squidbillies on Adult Swim is his favorite. He also enjoys Stephen King books and spending time with his family consisting of his wife, two kids and dog.
A 7-year-old Bronx boy's family says he was handcuffed after being falsely accused of stealing $5 from another student after school.
His mother, Frances Mendez, told the New York Post Wilson Reyes was "interrogated" by police for 10 hours on Dec. 4.
"My son was crying, 'Mommy, it wasn't me! Mommy, it wasn't me!' I never imagined the cops could do that to a child. We're traumatized," Mendez told the New York Post last night.
"Imagine how I felt seeing my son in handcuffs!" she said. "It was horrible. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”
Family attorney Jack Yankowitz filed a $250 million claim against the city and the New York Police Department.
He said Wilson was handcuffed and held in a room at P.S. X114 in the Bronx for four hours, then transported to a police precinct. He allegedly was held there for six hours and charged with robbery.
The Post says the city dropped the charge Dec. 26. A spokesman declined to comment.
School officials say the incident occurred off school grounds. It referred inquiries to the NYPD.
Police had no immediate comment.
