Jimmy Buffett’s 1977 album, Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, became not only the singer’s breakthrough hit, but an iconic collection of music that embodied the free-spirit of the Key West, island lifestyle, a world with which Jimmy Buffett has now become synonymous. Jimmy Buffet’s career began in Tennessee with his first album, Down to Earth, in 1970. Shortly after he moved to Key West to begin the journey as the man and lifestyle with which we now associate him. “Margaritaville” became Jimmy Buffet’s first Top 10 hit, and he continued to record, tour, and perform throughout the rest of the 1970’s, 1980’s, and 1990’s. In the new millennium, Jimmy Buffett won a Country Music Award for “It’s Five O’clock Somewhere,” and two years later he established Radio Margaritaville with Sirius radio.
He was nominated again in 2007 for “Hey Good Lookin’, and in 2009, his 28th studio album, Buffet Hotel, was released. In addition, Jimmy Buffett is an avid supporter of numerous charities, including the Save the Manatee Foundation, which he co-founded in 1981. His “Singing for Change” foundation provides relief for children, families, and those disenfranchised, and environmental causes. In total, eight of Jimmy Buffet’s thirty albums have gone Gold, Platinum, or Multi-Platinum. He is a beloved figure to all his Parrotheads and continues to write, record, perform, and tour.
