Biography

Jimmy Buffett, one of the most
financially successful musical artists of his generation, established an
easy-going, laid-back vibe and turned it into an empire. Born December 25, 1946
in Pascagoula, Mississippi, Buffett acquired a knowledge of sailing in his
childhood thanks to his grandfather and would use that knowledge to make a
living while he worked on his musical career. His debut album, 1970’s Down
to Earth
was country, but after relocating to Key West from Nashville he
started adopting Caribbean influences into his work. His story-song writing
style began to detail characters escaping from the world, often through alcohol.
He cracked the top 40 for the first time in 1974 with the bittersweet “Come
Monday”
, but his giant breakthrough came in 1977 with the album Changes
in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
, which went top 10 on both the country
and the main album charts. It also contained “Margaritaville”, which
topped the Adult Contemporary chart, reached number 8 on the pop chart, and 13
on the country chart, and became his signature tune, eventually providing the
name for a successful restraint chain, Margaritaville Café. He became a road
warrior, touring every summer, dependably playing his biggest hits (“Margaritaville”,
“Fins”, “Cheeseburger in Paradise”, “Why Don’t We Get Drunk”),
and amassing an ever growing and loyal fanbase that became known as
“Parrotheads”. In addition to regularly releasing new albums through the 1990s,
Buffet parlayed his brand into other ventures including book writing, real
estate, legal marijuana, writing stage musicals, and beer. He also made
numerous appearances in films and on television. Though his recording output
started to lessen in the 21st century, he remained a huge draw as a
live performer. In 2018, a jukebox musical utilizing his songs, Escape to
Margaritaville
, opened on Broadway. He released Life on the Flip Side in 2020.
