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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
