Jimmy Releases Statement on North Carolina Shows

Recently North Carolina passed into law a “religious freedom” bill that essentially legalizes discrimination against the LGBT community. Several corporations, sports leagues, and entertainers have criticized the legislation. Paypal canceled plans to expand its campus in Charlotte and Bruce Springsteen canceled a show in the state because of the law.

Jimmy Buffett has two shows scheduled in North Carolina later this month. He released a statement this morning criticizing the “stupid law” but saying that the shows will go on:

As a traveling musician for 40 years, I played many shows years ago, in many states where you could go to prison for 20 years for smoking a joint. It was a stupid law based on stupid assumptions. Time has fortunately reversed a lot of that way of thinking. But now another stupid law, based on stupid assumptions, has sprung up like kudzu in North Carolina, where we are scheduled to play shows next week in Raleigh and Charlotte.

North Carolina was there for me as a performer in the early days and I have always felt a loyalty to fans there that goes deep. Rightly so, a lot of people are reacting to the stupid law. I happen to believe that the majority of our fans in North Carolina feel the way I do about that law. I am lucky enough to have found a job in the business of fun. These shows were booked and sold out long before the governor signed that stupid law. I am not going to let stupidity or bigotry trump fun for my loyal fans this year. We will be playing in Raleigh and Charlotte next week.

That said, as for the future of shows in North Carolina, it would definitely depend on whether that stupid law is repealed. That is up to the good people of North Carolina and there are many, and I am confident that they will see that the right thing will be done. As Forrest said, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

Fins Up,
Jimmy Buffett

Mississippi State Senate Passes Buffett Beach Bill

The Mississippi State House has already passed a bill to name the Pascagoula beach after Jimmy Buffett, and now the State Senate has followed suit:

Now, a bill moving through the state legislature combines George’s love of Buffett and the beach. The measure would rename the three-mile stretch of sand in Pascagoula “Buffett Beach”.

City leaders say the move would put Pascagoula on the tourism map.

“I want them to Google “Buffett Beach” and for Pascagoula to pop up on the map, and for us to be on Google Earth and everybody say, ‘Oh man, we need to go check that out.’ That would be really exciting for us,” said Steinberger.

Many agree renaming the beach just blocks from Buffett’s childhood home would be a fitting tribute to a native son who never forgot his roots.

“I think it’d be awesome. I think it would be great for the town,” said Laurie Lambard of Pascagoula.

If the bill becomes law, the city hopes to hold the dedication ceremony on May 6, 2017. May 6 is “Jimmy Buffett Day” in Pascagoula, and also his parents’ wedding anniversary.
