News Release from The Ketch & Yawl Press

A new book titled “JIMMY BUFFETT – The Key West Years” will debut at
this year’s Meeting of the Minds in Key West, November 2 through
November 5th.

Written by Tom Corcoran, Jimmy’s longtime photographer and co-lyricist
of “Cuban Crime of Passion” and Fins,” the 64-page trade paperback
includes over three dozen photos from 1971 onward. It’s the perfect
handbook for fans and Key West visitors. Plenty of “stories we can
tell” and details about JB’s life away from the rock-and-roll trail.
Readers will gain insight to song lyrics, lifestyle, hangouts, and the
35-year love affair between Jimmy Buffett and the city at the end of
road.

It’s currently available online from The Margaritaville Store, Key
West, and it’s soon to be in a store near you.

Buffett Enters Nashville Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Jimmy Buffett was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall Of Fame on Sunday night during a ceremony at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.

Sunday night, duo Big & Rich joined Marshall Chapman, Buzz Cason and Don Light in honoring Buffett.

Buffett got up after the speech and musical tribute, by which time Light, his old friend and agent, had already put his honor into perspective: “This is not the last Hall of Fame into which he will be inducted, but I think it’s really appropriate that it’s the first.”


For his part, Buffett offered good humor along with appreciation. After Big & Rich sang “Margaritaville,” Buffett joked, “Hugh Prestwood gets Trisha Yearwood and I get these clowns.” Later Buffett said, “I never got in it to become big and rich, but, what the . . . , it happened.”
