Today marks the birthdays of two Cajun music legends.  Today is Grammy award winners Wayne Toups and Jo-El Sonnier's birthdays.

Wayne Toups turns 61 years old today.  Wayne is still at it touring and recording new music.  He just releases his latest single called Nothing Fancy and it is great.  The ballad is typical Wayne Toups pouring his heart out kind of song.

Wayne of course also known for his timeless classic songs like Please Explain, Take My Hand, Two Step Mamou, Tupelo Honey, and That's What I Love About My Baby just to name a few.

Joel Sonnier turns 73 today and is best known for his legendary Cajun music and his version of Jolie Blonde which is a staple in SLWA.  In the mid 1980's he went to Nashville where he signed wih RCA records and released a couple of huge country hits with No More One More Time and Tear Stained Letter.

Happy Birthday to these two legends!  Merci Beau Coup pour bon musique!
