Hollywood has been kind. Brokedown Cadillac have kept themselves busy over the last three years, writing music and appearing on both television and film. Their first opportunity came in the form of director Andy Fickman, and his request that Brokedown not only contribute five songs to his film, “Race to Witch Mountain,” but also appear as themselves in a honky-tonk alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Disney not only met his offer, but selected not one, but two Brokedown songs to appear on the soundtrack (“Boogie Woogie Saturday Night” and “Southern Nights”).
Work begets work. While Brokedown Cadillac went to work on the all the local haunts that Los Angeles could afford in the way of live music venues, honing their live set, once even opening for newly minted number one artist Zac Brown Band, they were called upon yet again by Hollywood–this time for CW’s series, Valentine. And so it continued, as Brokedown Cadillac has now had over thirty music placements in television and film. More recently, they have enjoyed their songs on Desperate Housewives, the civil rights documentary, Leaving Selma, for which they wrote the theme song, as well as ten placements for the CW’s hit show Hellcats, including a cover of Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz,” which can be found on the Hellcats soundtrack. Brokedown Cadillac were even invited to appear as themselves on the Hellcats cliffhanger–rocking Vancouver!
Mo Better. Most recently, Brokedown Cadillac has teamed with hit songwriter Danny Myrick (“She’s Country,” “International Harvester”) and has been writing and producing material for their new album, as well as writing songs for a film (yet to be named) soundtrack. The pairing has been a great fit, and if you’re looking for proof, check out “Can You Hear Me,” “Let It Ride,” and “Bring It On,” on iTunes. Yer sure to dig it man!
More than music. Brokedown Cadillac is an official sponsor of freedom and the American Dream, and are proud to have entertained the troops working and living overseas in both Iraq and Kuwait. Brokedown is honored to have served those who serve on three separate tours, spending over a collective month in the Middle East. Inspired by those incredible men and women, and humbled by their dedication, Brokedown Cadillac penned and recorded the track “Don’t Forget,” which will be released soon.
Speak English. When Corri English isn’t scaling buildings in a single bound, she is singing, acting, or baking. While she’s yet to appear on Top Chef, she has had her share of film and television appearances, such as “Dawson’s Creek,” “One Tree Hill,” “Without a Trace,” “CSI:Miami,” “NCIS,” and “The Bedford Diaries.” She can also be seen starring in many films such as “Runaway Jury,” “Unrest,” “House of Fears,” and along-side Cybill Shepard in “Mrs. Washington Goes to Smith.” She is currently gearing up to star in new TV series, “Holliston” created by writer/director Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen), and premiering in early 2012 on FEARnet. Another cool little known factoid—Corri penned the song “Fly Away” with Kristen Hall and Kristian Bush for Sugarland’s triple-platinum album Twice the Speed of Life. Not too bad for a girl, huh.
More than a pretty face. Brokedown’s Randy Dunham can make a coconut cream pie better than your mother. This is a fact confirmed by Corri’s Meemaw, and corroborated by Randy himself. Also, he wrote a book that won an award, and he has a really big… love of Taylor Guitars!
