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.
Cory Myers is a Connecticut native, raised in the All-American Valley borough of Naugatuck. She attended Holy Cross High School and went on to college at Eastern CT State University and Central CT where she was bitten by the radio bug. A graduate of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (because college took too long for her!), she started her career as a traffic reporter flying in a plane above Hartford and quickly moved onto more solid ground, literally. Paying her dues in overnights, she quickly moved into mornings as a producer (since she was there when the morning show came in and they needed help anyway).
A music lover, Cory has worked on-air in Top 40, Hard rock, Oldies and Country, where she has made her home for the past 17 years. She’s covered the Grammy Awards, Radio Music Awards, several star studded movie premieres, the CMA’s and ACM’s and even the MTV Movie Awards.
Cory loves to donate her time to various charity organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Connecticut Humane Society, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Gifts of Love and Make-A-Wish Foundation among others, hosting various charity motorcycle rides, auctions and events for them.
She and her husband Jason live in Southington with their three favorite people in the world, their three kids, Austin, 12, Carter, 5 and Gianna, 3, and their dogs Aretha, an American Staffordshire Terrier, they adopted from the CT Humane Society and their new puppy Capone. When she’s not working, you can find her at the Pricechopper or Walmart in town, making her own sauce (she’s 100% Italian and has big hair to prove it), sitting by her pool in the summer time or watching reruns of Star Trek or some other crazy sci-fi show (she is a self-professed nerd at heart and proud of it!)

The first episode of season 12 closed out Wednesday night with the story of Ashlee Feliciano, 20, of East Hartford. Built up as one of the best talents of the episode, Feliciano wowed the judges with a rendition of “Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae. The judges’ reactions were near instant.
“I don’t think you understand what you just did,” said judge Nicki Minaj. “I’m so inspired by you, and I think so many girls will be inspired by you too.”
“I think it was really nice, I thought everything was really nice and clear,” said Mariah Carey. “The potential is great. it’s beautiful, you should be really proud of yourself.”
In an interview segment before the audition, Feliciano’s large extended family was profiled. Ashlee’s parents, Cesar and Hope Feliciano, talk about their three biological children (including Ashlee), and four foster children who are “medically complex.”
The fact that the show’s cameras recorded interviews and intimate family moments in what appears to be her home bodes well for Ashlee Feliciano. Connecticut Idol watchers may remember the extended interviews with Middlebury’s Katie Stevens at the beginning of season nine. Stevens went on to finish in eighth place.
