Gregg Allman revealed in an interview on CNN last night that he is now engaged to a 24-year-old woman named Shannon. Allman confirmed the engagement in an interview with Piers Morgan, who questioned the Allman Brothers Band musician about the relationship on camera.

When asked what his fiancée thought of becoming his seventh wife, Allman replied, "That's not what she's becoming. She's becoming wife Number One. I don't have a wife, I haven't had one for years." Allman later told Morgan that "this time, I am really in love," and said that he was only in love with two of his previous wives, though "they didn't reciprocate."

You can watch a clip of Allman revealing his engagement on Morgan's show below.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
