Birthdays For April 29th + Shrimp Scampi Day
If your birthday is today, congratulations! You share the same date as two names in country music. Duane Allen, born in Taylortown, Texas, in 1943. In 1966, he joins The Oak Ridge Boys, who successfully convert 11 years later from gospel music to country. Their version of "Elvira" sells 2 million copies, as they register more than 30 Top 10 hits through 1991. Happy 72nd, Duane! Also celebrating today, songwriter Ashley Gorley, born in Danville, Kentucky, in 1977. He writes such hits as Darius Rucker's "Radio," Carrie Underwood's "Good Girl," Luke Bryan's "That's My Kind Of Night" and Brad Paisley's "American Saturday Night". Happy 38th, Ashley!
This Is National Shrimp Scampi Day!!
I'll bet you know how to celebrate this day, right? You guessed it! Just sit down, eat and enjoy a great meal or if you prefer, a snack. Shrimp scampi is very simple and easy to make. You bet and it's so tasty too! Just cook the shrimp along with butter and chopped garlic in a skillet and your good to go.
