Jimmy Buffett Caricature, illustrated here, drinking his stubby Budwieser at Louie’s Backyard Bar, Key West, FL in 1974, age 28, where he wrote the song “Trying Reason With Hurricane Season”.
Buffett is an American singer, songwriter, musician, author, actor, and businessman. He is best known for his music, with his Coral Reefer Band, which often portrays an “island escapism” lifestyle.
He has a devoted base of fans known as “Parrotheads”.
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.
Country music singer Jerry Jeff Walker took him to Key West on a busking expedition in November 1971. Buffett then moved to Key West and began establishing the easy-going beach-bum persona for which he is known.
He started out playing for drinks at the Chart Room Bar in the Pier House Motel.
With the untimely death of friend and mentor Jim Croce in September 1973, ABC/Dunhill Records tapped Buffett to fill his space.
During the 1980s, Buffett made far more money from his tours than his albums and became known as a popular concert draw.
Greatest Hits: “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor”, “Fins”, “He Went To Paris”, “Cheeseburger In Paradise”, “Margaritaville”, “A Pirate Looks At Forty”, “One Particular Harbor”, “Come Monday”, “Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes”, “Why Don’t We Get Drunk”, “Nobody From Nowhere” and “Volcano”.
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 in his 30-year career.
Buffett is and avid sailor and pilot.
