"American Idol" contestant Joshua Ledet is getting a special delivery in Hollywood courtesy of his home state of Louisiana — tamales from Zwolle, a town rich in Spanish and Indian heritage.Ever since Ledet, a native of Westlake, La., mentioned on the Fox reality TV show several weeks ago that one of the things he missed most while competing in Los Angeles was Louisiana food, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne has been overseeing shipments of Louisiana eats in what he calls a "Feed the Dream" effort.

Well, of course we are super proud of our Louisiana connection on "American Idol", and I just know that Joshua probably can't find any real Cajun food in LA (I like to say we are the "real LA"!), so maybe it will inspire his performance on the show-good luck Joshua from all of us here at 97.3 the DAWG!
