Cadillac is a new duo that consists of Corri English and Randy
Dunham. They crossed paths when English stopped in at a club in
LA where Dunham's band was playing. After a couple of drinks,
English stepped up to the stage to sing a cover song from Pink
and the seed was sown for the future. After his then partner
left to pursue other interests, he contacted English and asked
her to join him. She accepted and BrokeDown Cadillac was formed.
While their backgrounds are diverse, they discovered a mutual
love of country music and began working on writing material for
an original country album. Somewhere in America is the
result of those efforts and each song on it offers a piece of
Along with putting together a new album, BrokeDown Cadillac was
also chosen to appear in the Disney film, "Race to Witch
Mountain." They are included in a performance sequence of the
film playing in a honky-tonk bar and five of their songs were
used in the movie. Two songs were chosen to be on the movie
Somewhere in America is an album with a very well thought
out lineup of songs. The theme of the album is life in America,
and they did a good job of choosing songs that portray the
varied world of the average American citizen.
"BrokeDown Cadillac" is that favorite car that you keep nursing

for sentimental reasons.
"Scarlet O'Hara (Ghost of Dixie)" is an up-tempo tune about a
lady who lives life to the fullest and walks the path of her
choice with no one to answer to but herself.
"Last Picture Show" is all about small town life.
"The Breakers" offers a look at a woman who falls for the wrong
guy and the events that lead to a very final choice for her.
The last song on the album is a ballad called "Love Walks On,"
and closes it all down with the promises that love is there for
those who are patient enough to wait and willing to make it
All in all, it's not a bad album. While it didn't reach out and
grab me on the first listen, it grew on me as I listened to it a
few times. The harmonies and vocals are well blended and the
lyrics have substance. It's not what I would consider a true
country album, leaning more on the pop side of things while
still just enough over the line to be labeled country. But
overall it is a very good debut project.
