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.
Record people and bloggers voiced their thoughts on this for an article I did back in May.

"Better I Don't" singer Chris Janson
Big Kenny of the CMA nominated duo Big & Rich (Skip to 1:08 mark)
While neither artist gave a direct 'yes,' theirs answers came off as almost too PC. I think it's safe to say they wouldn't care either way, gay or straight.
LUKE BRYAN, LEE BRICE and COLE SWINDELL are coming to Mohegan Sun on January 23rd! Ticket details forthcoming...
