Randy and I had the chance to sit down this morning with Kristy from Southeastern Charm. She is super sweet and we really enjoyed chatting with her! She is involved with Southern Beauty magazine and is starting her own mag called Southeastern Charm which will launch in March 2010. Here is a blog about our coffee date!

Introducing BrokeDown Cadillac
Southeastern Charm’s publisher, Kristy Ensor, recently had a chance to catch up with the delightful and talented duo - Corri English and Randy Dunham of the modern country group BrokeDown Cadillac. The two have made their way from L.A. to Music City where they’ll continue pursuing their music career. English, a Georgia native, is also an actress who has lived in L.A., and she says - “Nashville is the best of both worlds coming from L.A. and Atlanta. There’s lots of southern hospitality plus it’s a very artistic town. I love being here.” Dunham, who was born and raised in California, also speaks highly of his new hometown. “People are nice and friendly. There’s openness in the south with dignity and graciousness.”
BrokeDown Cadillac had an exciting opportunity to be a part of the Disney movie Race to Witch Mountain starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. It was the movie’s director, Andy Fickman, who was especially instrumental in getting them in the film. This movie was a perfect launching pad for the band to take off. They can be seen performing in a honky-tonk bar in the film. Plus five of their songs can be heard throughout the movie. Two of their songs – “Southern Nights” and “Boogie Woogie Saturday Night” are available on the digital soundtrack from Walt Disney Records.
The fabulous five-piece band has also released its debut album “Somewhere in America.” It’s difficult to believe that the petite Corri English can belt out such strong and pure vocals. “I am really impressed with this band, and I just know they have a bright future,” says Ensor. “Being a big-time country music fan, I’m convinced that BrokeDown Cadillac will soon be topping the charts!”
Be sure to read the feature article about BrokeDown Cadillac in the premier issue of Southeastern Charm launching March 1, 2010. In the meantime, to find out more about this up and coming band, please visit their website – www.brokedowncadillac.net.
