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!)

Mindy McCready dead of apparent suicide
Sheriff's deputies in Cleburne County, Arkansas are confirming the singer's death, saying McCready was found inside her home in Heber Springs Sunday, and that it appeared she died from a single gun shot wound to the head. Her body has been sent to the State Crime unit. No other details have been released.
The 37-year-old singer has had a long history of personal struggle. She had been in and out of rehab while battling addiction and mental health issues. McCready was being treated at a facility earlier this month before she was released to an outpatient program. Her death comes one month after the January 13th death of her boyfriend, David Wilson, 34, at his Arkansas home. Authorities are still investigating his death.Mindy leaves behind two young sons: 6-year-old Zander (with ex Billy McKnight) and 9-month-old Zayne (with Wilson).
Mindy McCready moved from her hometown of Fort Myers, Florida at the age of 18 to launch her country music career. She scored a top ten hit with her first single, "Ten Thousand Angels," which was the title track to her 1996 debut album. The CD also featured Mindy's first chart-topper, "Guys Do It All The Time" as well as the 1997 hit "A Girl's Gotta Do (What A Girl's Gotta Do)." The album went double platinum. McCready's next two albums, 1997's If I Don't Stay the Night and 1999's I'm Not So Tough both cracked the top ten, but the country star never matched the success of her first studio effort.
As the years progressed, Mindy began making more headlines for her turbulent personal life than for her music. In 2004 McCready was arrested on drug charges and put on probation after pleading guilty. But she ended up in jail more than once on probation violations. In May 2005, McCready's ex-boyfriend, Billy McKnight, was arrested for attempted murder after a brutal attack on the singer. In the months that followed, McCready was twice hospitalized following suicide attempts, the second of which occurred after she learned she was pregnant with McKnight's child. She gave birth to son Zander in March 2006. In 2008, McCready came forward with allegations that she'd had an affair with baseball great Roger Clemens when she was just 15 years old. Clemens denied McCready's claims.
McCready's legal and substance abuse problems led to her losing custody of Zander, who was placed with her mom in Florida. Mindy spent years battling her parents for custody, which she eventually won in late 2011 - after taking the boy from her father's home and hiding out with him at boyfriend David Wilson's Arkansas home. Last April she and Wilson celebrated the birth of their son, Zayne. McCready attempted to relaunch her music career in 2010 with I'm Still Here, her first studio effort in eight years. The album peaked at number 71 on the chart, and neither single from the disc charted.
Stacy McCloud, a reporter for FOX 17 Nashville initially tweeted the news Sunday night. Several sources, including E! Online, People.com and NY Daily News, soon reported the news as well.
Mindy moved to Nashville at age 18 to pursue a career in country music. She released her debut album, Ten Thousand Angels, included the number-one hit “Guys Do it All the Time” and sold more than two-million copies. Subsequent albums -- 1997’s If I Don’t Stay the Night, 1999’s I’m Not So Tough and 2002’s self-titled project -- failed to match the success of her first release. Nonetheless, she had 12 singles make the Billboard country chart over her career.
Mindy spent far more time in the news for her personal problems.
Mindy, whose latest album, I’m Still Here, was released in March of 2010, leaves behind her sons Zander and Zayne.
