"...just right for any country fan who
likes the feisty
side of Miranda Lambert
and the blazing-guitars side of Keith Urban"-CMT
Corri English got an early start in her entertainment career. By the age of 5, she was working professionally in theater, commercials, and voice-over, and hasn’t stopped since. Highlights of her film career include a supporting role in Runaway Jury, alongside Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman, and John Cusack, and starring roles in numerous independent films such as House of Fears, Broken Windows, Killer Pad, Unrest, and Devil May Call, as well as Hallmark Channel’s movie-of-the-week Mrs. Washington Goes to Smith, alongside Cybill Shepard. Her television work includes guest-starring and recurring roles on shows such as CSI: Miami, House, and Luke Cage, to name a few, as well as a series regular roles on the WB's The Bedford Diaries, and 3-camera sit-com Holliston, which recently received a third season pick-up. Corri has also worked extensively in the voice-over world – from television and radio commercials, to multi-platform campaigns and radio imaging, to animation and video games.
In addition to her acting career, Corri is a singer and song-writer. She fronted modern country band Brokedown Cadillac, which CMT described as "just right for any country fan who likes the feisty side of Miranda Lambert and the blazing-guitars side of Keith Urban.” The band had dozens of their songs placed in television & film, including Desperate Housewives, Hellcats and The Mentalist, and was featured in the film and on the soundtrack of Disney’s Race to Witch Mountain. The band are also huge supporters of the military, and have done several tours overseas to Kuwait & Iraq to perform for US troops. They performed for a TV audience of millions on the MDA Labor Day Telethon, alongside Celine Dion, Lady Antebellum, and Martina McBride.
In 2019, Corri partnered with DAOU Vineyards for her first release as a solo artist, starting with the song/video release of “Rosé All Day,” followed by “Callaway Gardens” and “Feelin Like Christmas.” Corri has also penned many songs for other artists, including Sugarland’s "Fly Away" on their album Twice the Speed of Life, and The Belle's "Beautiful Girl" (currently touring with Jojo Siwa). You can also hear Corri on the critically acclaimed podcast “Hi My Name Is Mom.”
While Corri loves to be behind a mic, in front of a camera, or holding a guitar, her favorite thing is hanging with her husband, Ty Bentli, host of the internationally syndicated country morning show The Ty Bentli Show, and their sons, Radley and Sebastian, and daughter Teddi, at their home in Nashville. You can often find them making up songs (they come by it honest!), having a dance party in the kitchen, or hiding out in a blanket fort.
