|Jimmy Buffett (born December 25, 1946 in Pascagoula, Mississippi) is an American singer and songwriter, best known for his "island escapism" lifestyle and music including hits such as "Margaritaville." He has a rabid, but genial, cult following known as "Parrot Heads." They call the youngest members "Parakeets".
Buffett grew up in Mobile, Alabama, where he attended McGill-Toolen Catholic High School and first began playing guitar. He continued playing during his college years at Auburn University and the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where he received a bachelor's degree in journalism in 1969. Later that year, he married his first wife, Margie Washichek, at Spring Hill College in Mobile. Buffett began his official musical career in Nashville during the late 1960s as a country artist, and recorded his first album, Down to Earth in 1970. He then moved to Key West and began establishing the easy-going beach bum persona for which he is known.
Buffett's second album was A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean, now acclaimed as his best though it achieved only moderate sales. Havana Daydreamin' appeared in 1976, followed by 1977's Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, which featured the breakthrough hit song, Margaritaville.
During the 1980s, Buffett made far more money off his tours than albums, and he became known as a popular concert draw. He released a series of albums during the following twenty years, primarily to his devoted audience, as well as branching into writing and merchandising of various kinds. Two of the more unusual albums were "Christmas Island", a collection of holiday songs and "Parakeets", a collection of Buffett songs sung by children and containing "cleaned-up" lyrics (like "a cold root beer" instead of "a cold draft beer")
In 2003, he partnered with Alan Jackson for the number one country hit "It's Five O'clock Somewhere," his first number one spot on the country charts.
Buffett released a new album called License to Chill on July 13, 2004. The album sold 238,600 copies in its first week of release according to Nielsen SoundScan. Buffett topped the U.S. pop albums chart for the first time in his three-decade career.
Buffett owns the "Margaritaville" and "Cheeseburger In Paradise" restaurants. He makes millions of dollars a year between his restaurants and his tours.
