Caroline Jones Releases “Gulf Coast Girl” with Jimmy Buffett, Chesney, and Others

July 3rd, 2019


Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally wrote a song for Caroline Jones that she has recorded and filmed a music video for. Buffett, McAnally, Kenny Chesney, and Lukas Nelson provide vocals on the song as well.

Buffett has not only been a strong supporter, he’s now co-written a song for Jones.

“This is a really, really cool story,” says Jones. “I became close friends with Jimmy when we went out on tour last year. I’ve known Mac McAnally since 2012. He’s Jimmy’s right hand man musically, he’s a songwriter, producer, musician’s musician. . He was one of the first people to bring me to Nashville and introduce me to the studio musician scene. So, it was a real honor when they came to me and said they’d written a song for me to sing called “Gulf Coast Girl.”

Jones says the lyrics were written to speak to the beauty and culture of the Gulf Coast and Buffett took time to share some of that history with her. She does the lead vocals, but gets a little bit of help.

“The song features Jimmy, Kenny Chesney, it features Mac, and also features Lukas Nelson. It’s an incredible group to be associated with or even named with in the same breath,” she says.

Jones, who now calls Florida home, traveled to Alabama to shoot the video.

“I hadn’t been to Gulf Shores, Alabama and it’s absolutely gorgeous. It was so much fun to shoot. Those white sand beaches are beautiful and the people are so nice. I see what Jimmy and Mac are talking about. It’s a very special part of the world.”

Buffett to Appear on Upcoming Kenny Chesney Album

June 17th, 2018


Kenny Chesney has recruited a couple of his island friends for his upcoming album Songs for the Saints that will be released on July 27th. All proceeds from the album will go to Kenny’s foundation Love for Love City for hurricane relief in the Virgin Islands.

Kenny and Jimmy recorded a collaboration of “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season” for the album.

“Each one of them has a tie to my life in the islands, but also reflect some piece of what we’re trying to do,” he shared in a recent press release. “Ziggy Marley, and his family’s legacy, holds so much truth for all of the people I know down there. Mindy Smith’s ‘Come To Jesus’ was an album I lived with from morning to night when I was first going down there – and her voice sounds like an angel. And Jimmy, more than the lost shaker of salt, understands the poetry of the islands beyond what tourists see, the life in a way that made a song written decades ago so current. I’m honored they also want to help.”

Here’s the full track list:

  1. Songs for the Saints
  2. Every Heart
  3. Get Along
  4. Pirate Song
  5. Love for Love City (with Ziggy Marley)
  6. Ends Of The Earth
  7. Gulf Moon
  8. Island Rain
  9. Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season (with Jimmy Buffett)
  10. We’re All Here
  11. Better Boat (featuring Mindy Smith)

Pre-order the album now at Amazon or iTunes.

Huey Lewis Cancels Tour Appearances Due to Hearing Loss

April 13th, 2018


Huey Lewis was set to play some shows this summer again with Jimmy Buffett, but in a note posted on his website he revealed that he will not make any tour appearances due to hearing loss:

Two and a half months ago, just before a show in Dallas, I lost most of my hearing. Although I can still hear a little, one on one, and on the phone, I can’t hear music well enough to sing. The lower frequencies distort violently making it impossible to find pitch. I’ve been to the House Ear Institute, the Stanford Ear Institute, and the Mayo Clinic, hoping to find an answer. The doctors believe I have Meniere’s disease and have agreed that I can’t perform until I improve. Therefore the only prudent thing to do is to cancel all future shows. Needless to say, I feel horrible about this, and wish to sincerely apologize to all the fans who’ve already bought tickets and were planning to come see us. I’m going to concentrate on getting better, and hope that one day soon I’ll be able to perform again. Sincerely, Huey

Best wishes to Huey on his recovery!
