Buffalo Bachelor Makes Finalist on CMT Series
Buffalo bachelor makes finalist on CMT series
Buffalo native Michael Chadwick, shown at left, is one of ten bachelors remaining on Country Music Television's new series "Sweet Home Alabama." The bachelors from big cities and small towns are vying for the affections of Devin Grissom, a southern belle from Alabama.
In the fourth episode airing at 9 tonight, Grissom and Chadwick are flown from Fairhope, Ala. (outside of Mobile) to New York City for a date.
"It's funny how they're portraying me as a city slicker and I was born in Buffalo and raised in the Rochester suburb of Scottsville," said Chadwick earlier today during a phone interview from his Queens residence. "I'm trying to convince her that city life is the way to go."
A confidentiality clause prohibits Chadwick from talking about his date.
Chadwick, 28, was born at Kenmore Mercy Hospital. He moved to Rochester at age 6, but returned here to study theater at the University at Buffalo. While at UB, he was assistant director for Anton Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard" staged at the university's Center for the Arts in 2009.
From 2007-08, Chadwick toured the country with the gospel band Liberated Wailing Wall, performing in 200 cities and appearing in 47 states.
In New York, Chadwick works as a real estate agent for Bond New York.
"Real estate is what I do to pay bills," he said, "but acting is my passion."
