JIMMY BUFFETT

Jimmy Buffett (born December 25, 1946) is an American musician, songwriter, author, actor, and businessman. He is best known for his music, which often portrays an “island escapism” lifestyle. Together with his Coral Reefer Band, Buffett has recorded hit songs including “Margaritaville” (ranked 234th on the Recording Industry Association of America’s list of “Songs of the Century”) and “Come Monday”.

Jimmy Buffett began his musical career in Nashville, Tennessee during the late 1960s as a country artist, and recorded his first album, the folk rock “Down to Earth”, in 1970

Buffett’s third album was the 1973: “A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean”. Albums “Living & Dying in 3/4 Time” and “A1A” both followed in 1974, “Havana Daydreamin’” appeared in 1976, and “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes”, followed in 1977 and featured the breakthrough hit song “Margaritaville”.

In 1997, Buffett collaborated with novelist Herman Wouk to create a short-lived musical based on Wouk’s novel, “Don’t Stop the Carnival”. Broadway showed little interest in the play (following the failure of Paul Simon’s “The Capeman”), and it ran only for six weeks in Miami. He released an album of songs from the musical in 1998.

In 2003, he partnered in a partial duet with Alan Jackson for the song “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere”, a number-one hit on the country charts. This song won the 2003 Country Music Association Award for Vocal Event of the Year. This was Buffett’s first award of any kind in his 30-year career.

Jimmy Buffett is also a best-selling writer and is involved in two restaurant chains named after two of his best-known songs, “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “Margaritaville”. He owns the Margaritaville Cafe restaurant chain and co-developed the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant chain.
