Buffett Entertains Troops on USS Kearsarge

August 7th, 2019


When Jimmy Buffett was in the Virginia Beach area last week he visited the USS Kearsarge and performed for the troops:

Sailors and Marines with the Kearsarge Amphibious Ready Group (ARG), including its embarked units who returned from a seven-month deployment July 18, were treated to a rare shipboard performance by the legendary music artist Jimmy Buffett August 2.

Buffett, who is in the area for a concert in Virginia Beach, learned the ship had recently returned from a deployment and performed for the crew to show his appreciation for their sacrifice and service.

“Welcome home,” said Buffett. “Both Kearsarge and I were born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, so I feel a kindred spirit to your wonderful ship.”

Buffett thanked the crew for providing humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to the people of Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

“We decided to come play for you to thank you all for what you do for us,” said Buffett. “The least we could do is come take you away to Margaritaville.”

“We are grateful and humbled to have hosted Jimmy Buffett onboard Kearsarge today. He is a longtime friend of the Navy and came specifically to welcome the crew home from our seven-month deployment,” said Capt. Jason Rimmer, Kearsarge’s commanding officer. “It was absolutely terrific to show him the ship and hear his iconic songs in our hangar bay.”

During the performance Buffett sang classics such as “Margaritaville,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and “Son of a Son of a Sailor.”

“I’m always thankful to anyone who takes time to show their appreciation for our service and sacrifice,” said Legalman 1st Class Keiana Zinnah, a Kearsarge ARG Sailor. “This time I had the added bonus of watching the incredible Jimmy Buffett perform.”

While onboard, Buffett took a tour of the ship, met with Sailors and their families and took a few pictures with adoring fans or “Parrotheads” of all ranks and ages. The visit was a truly memorable experience for the Kearsarge ARG team who greatly appreciate Buffett for volunteering his time to deliver the sweet sounds of his signature tropical rock to their ears and help the crew celebrate good times at home again with family and friends.

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.”
