Mac McAnally, longtime Coral Reefer Band member, producer, and songwriter was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame last night. Jimmy Buffett was in attendance and did the induction of Mac. The Tennessean covered the ceremony: “It’s writers’ turn to be honored for songs”

At night’s end, Buffett inducted his friend, sometimes-producer and Coral Reefer band member McAnally into the Hall. McAnally’s hits include Ricky Van Shelton’s “Crime Of Passion,” Alabama’s “Old Flame” and Sawyer Brown’s “All These Years.” “I wake up every day with a song in my heart, and then I try to get it (out there),” McAnally said. “I am taken aback with this honor.”

Mac wrote or co-wrote multiple songs that Buffett has recorded, including “It’s My Job,” and “When The Coast Is Clear.” Perhaps Mac’s most famous songs that he has written are the Sawyer Brown hits “All These Years” and “Cafe Down On The Corner.” He also wrote “Back Where I Come From,” a song that Kenny Chesney recorded and has made a staple at his shows.

The Press-Register has an article on Buffett’s grandfather’s shipwreck in Mobile:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Thursday ordered a condo developer to stop digging up the sunken remains of a four-masted schooner once captained by the grandfather of singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett.

The decaying wooden hulk is that of the Chiquimula, a longtime Mobile Bay-area landmark, which was commanded for many years by Capt. James Buffett, a highly regarded Gulf Coast master mariner.

The vessel’s charred hull, buried for more than 50 years beside the shore of Blakeley River near the Causeway, lies in the way of plans for boat slips at Shellbank Landing, a planned 57-unit condominium project.

Last week, a diving contractor hired by real estate developer Dent Boykin and his business partners began using a high-pressure pump to uncover the underwater remains of what Boykin thought was a vessel singer Jimmy Buffett mentions in a song and in a book.

Article compares Buffett and Kenny Chesney

The Hamptons.com has an article comparing Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Chesney, entitled “Buffett and Chesney: Flip-Floppers and Five O’Clock “

One key element in the music of both Chesney and Buffett is the lifestyle they exude from the music and the stage. Buffett played the entire concert in t-shirt, yellow shorts and no shoes. Chesney wore flip-flops, forgoing the traditional Country Music staple footwear, boots. These are the guys you want around in the Keys (or on a beach in the Hamptons), with money to spend and time to spare. The second factor, only from a male perspective, is the quality of female fans that both of these guys attract. I have yet to see that many bikini tops, halter tops, and topless tops in the middle of New York City before.
