Montana Courting Buffett for Next Year

A non-profit group in Montana is trying to bring Jimmy Buffett to Red Lodge near Yellowstone for a benefit concert next year:

A non-profit group for kid’s health is looking to bring Mr. Margaritaville himself to the Yellowstone Valley for a benefit concert.

Youth Dynamic has a major promoter that is working with Jimmy Buffett’s booking agent to secure a contract for a July 2010 concert in Red Lodge. They have raised $500,000 dollars for a down payment.

Organizers said they should know by the end of July if the concert will happen and tickets will go on sale shortly thereafter. Buffett has not performed in Montana since the ’70’s.


The concert would be held at a private ranch outside of Red Lodge. Youth Dynamics hopes to raise $1-million from the Buffett concert to support uninsured children with mental illness. Organizers say they do have a plan B in order should the Buffett contract not come through.

Jimmy Buffett is in Nashville recording music according to singer/songwriter Tommy Womack’s Facebook:

Tommy Womack: I just spent an hour in a recording studio watching Jimmy Buffet record my song. God is good.

This gives more credence to Nadirah Shakoor’s tweet that Jimmy will be at the Bonnaroo Music Festival on Saturday since this puts him within 70 miles of the venue.

There was no mention of what song was recorded.

Stephen Colbert’s Not in Margaritaville

Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert is airing his show “The Colbert Report” from Iraq this week. Before the trip he did not disclose where he would be going except that it would be somewhere in the Persian Gulf.

The intro for Monday’s episode had Colbert being whisked away without him knowing where he was going. He had a checklist with places written on it and one of the locations was Margaritaville. When he arrived at a hotel, he went up to the front desk and asked where the bar was and the lady said that there was no alcohol allowed there. So Stephen then crossed off Margaritaville from his list.

You can watch the full episode here.
