Ryan Broshear: gone fishin’

Broshear caught this Chinook salmon on a fishing trip to Baldwin, MI. Chinook were introduced to Michigan waters in the 1960s.

His “biggest fan” and wife of five years, Amie Metze Broshear, runs her own business, travels with Ryan and (according to the singer) is “totally responsible for the path my career has taken.” Without her, he said, “I’d still be playin’ in smoky bars, singin’ other peoples songs. When we moved to Nashville, Amie challenged me to write my own songs and be the best that I could be, and I owe it all to her.”

As Trout Town’s Celebrity Guest this year, Broshear is excited. “I’m so honored,” he said, “to be included in this elite group. President Jimmy Carter, movie star Mark Ruffalo and television’s Sally Jesse Raphael have thrown the ‘first cast’ in years past, so I’m truly humbled and feel blessed to be in such great company.” Prior to the opening ceremony, Broshear will appear in concert at the Monticello Casino and Raceway on April 4 at 9 p.m. and perform his latest single “Make Each Moment Last,” along with other hits from his self-titled album. Named one of Billboard Magazine’s County Artist’s to Watch in 2014, Ryan Broshear is looking forward to many more visits in the future. “Amie and I will be spending time here for the rest of our lives,” Broshear concluded. “This place is special and comfortable and feels like home. Let’s go fishin’!”
