Mississippi-born and Southern bred, one of Key West's favorite residents hits the First Coast today.
Jimmy Buffett performs his slew of feel-good songs at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena as he prepares to wrap up his "Summerzcool Tour".
Known for writing and performing music dedicated to enjoying the company of friends, good food, and alcoholic beverages, Buffett concert attendees can expect to hear classics like Cheeseburger in Paradise and Margaritaville. Die-hard Buffett fans or "Parrotheads", virtually know his show's lineup by heart.
After more than thirty years of recording and touring, Buffett is now one of the world's best-selling artists, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. RIAA statistics show that Buffett has three multi-platinum albums to his credit, with Songs You Know By Heart going 7x Platinum.
With his signature laid back, Gulf Western sound, the Country Music Award-winning entertainer is actually quite the businessman. Buffett's entrepreneurial ventures include several items based upon his signature tequila-laced beverage, restaurants, and his very own beer. His brand, Landshark Lager, is now visible at all Miami Dolphins home games, as Buffett has secured the naming rights for the facility.
