Billboard reports on the chart success of Jimmy Buffett’s latest music offering, the holiday album Tis The SeaSon:

Jimmy Buffett’s ‘Tis the Season enters Top Country Albums at No. 6 (10,000), marking his 15th showing on the list and seventh top 10. Buffett last landed on Top Country Albums with 2007’s Live at Texas Stadium with Alan Jackson and George Strait. His most recent solo album to place on the chart was 2006’s Take the Weather With You, his second leader; License to Chill led in 2004. Buffett first hit the Top Country Albums top 10 with Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, which peaked at No. 2 in 1977.

(Before appearing on Billboard’s charts, Buffett learned firsthand how they work: he was Billboard’s Nashville correspondent following his graduation from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1969.)

‘Tis the Season is Buffett’s second holiday LP. He released his first 20 years ago: Christmas Island sailed to No. 27 on the Billboard 200 in December 1996. (The two releases were perhaps predetermined: he was born Dec. 25, 1946.)

New Buffett Christmas Album Coming

It appears a new Jimmy Buffett Christmas album is in the works. In the same article about “Margaritaville” being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, a sound engineer spills the beans:

Alan Schulman, who has been engineering and mixing Buffett recordings since 1997, agreed with McAnally’s assessment.

“It has a lot to do with a lifestyle,” Schulman said. “It projects the sun, the ocean flip-flops. He kind of lives like that. He’s a fun man to be around. I think what it does is it gives people a chance to have a different lifestyle from their normal jobs a couple times a year, to go to a Jimmy concert and feel like they’re on the beach.”

Schulman said he was just booked to engineer a new Buffett Christmas album.

Jimmy’s first and only holiday album, Christmas Island, was released in 1996.

Get Mac McAnally’s New Album for Free

Mac McAnally has a new album out and is giving it out digital copies for free this holiday season. Go to Mac’s website to download the album.

From Mac:

Happy Holidays everybody. I’m working all the way up to the day or two before Christmas but want to touch base before then with all you folks who do me the honor of following my microscopic career. Thank you for the gift of putting in the work required to do so.

Now for the reciprocity part…

Everybody who knows me knows I do not possess the qualities required to be a salesman and I am writing today to re-enforce that fact.

I have a new CD (AKA NOBODY) which some of you have already purchased (thanks so much) and with it comes a bit of a dilemma.

This is my 12th Studio album and I am especially proud of the work my friends (Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown, Chris Stapleton, Sonny Landreth, The Coral Reefers and the McAnally Daughters ) and I did …. From writing to recording and performing I think it represents the best efforts of my God Given Limitations.

And since I don’t have it in me to ask anyone to buy it.. and since I spend (by choice) the bulk of my working life in the service of artists other than myself….

I want to give it to you.

I am not a man of great wealth but I can at least offer you something that I value and hope it brings something good to you and yours.

From now until January 4 you can have the whole project with the Digital artwork just by clicking on the link. If you already bought one Thank you so much. Feel free to download it again and give it to someone else.

I ask for nothing in return. If you are on my website you have already gifted me with your attention. I would love to hear what you think of the music good or bad as I intend to keep playing and singing for the rest of my life and your input will contribute to my attempts to improve, both as a musician and a human being.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I hope to see you all soon.

– Mac

P.S. I’m a writer and a musician, so I want everyone to know that I’ll be paying all the royalties due from all these free downloads. No pickers and singers and writers will be harmed in the process. I’m happy to do it. I hope I have to go into savings.
