Biography:
Jimmy Buffett has been
one of the nations top
touring acts for three
decades.

award until he teamed
up with Alan Jackson
for the hit

O'Clock Somewhere

collaboration won vocal
event of the year
honors at the 2003
CMA Music Awards.
Buffett studied
journalism at the
University Of Southern
Mississippi. Working as
the Nashville
correspondent for
Billboard magazine, he
built up contacts that
led to his 1970 debut
for Barnaby Records,
but the album and it's
follow up were not well
produced. Buffett
settled in Key West
Florida, and although
initially involved in
smuggling, he changed
his ways and went to
Nashville to record. In
1975,
Buffett formed the
Coral Reefer Band
while recording
Havana Daydreaming.
His songs continue to
reflect the Key West
lifestyle.
Jimmy Buffett remains
a major concert
attraction, especially in
Florida. He addresses
his fans as
"
Parrotheads".
At the 2003 CMA
Awards in Nashville,
Buffett and
Alan Jackson opened
the show with
It's Five
O'Clock Somewhere
.
After winning the vocal
award later that night,
Buffett noted,
"It was about 31 years
ago when I came to
this town to pursue my
musical madness, and
I've never won anything
for anything, and it's
great to do it here.
