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.”

Watch Official Lyric Video for ‘Moonfog’ from ‘The Beach Bum’ Film

June 18th, 2019


An official lyric music video has been published for the Jimmy Buffett / Snoop Dogg song ‘Moonfog’ from the 2019 film ‘The Beach Bum.’

In honor of Korine’s “The Beach Bum” arriving on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD, courtesy of NEON, we are happy to share an exclusive music video that encapsulates the best that “The Beach Bum” has to offer in a more appropriate way than any trailer. The music video is for the Jimmy Buffett/Snoop Dogg collaboration (yes, you read that right, the song is co-written by the duo and performed by Buffett), titled “Moonfog.”

The lyric video shows some glimpses at McConaughey’s performance as Moon Dog in “The Beach Bum,” while also giving fans of Buffett’s music a new song to hum along with for the rest of the day. And though the idea of Buffett, Snoop, and McConaughey combining for a new project sounds completely nuts, it works and illustrates just why Korine’s latest is too strange to pass up.

Buffett Records Spot for Wheel of Fortune

June 8th, 2019


Jimmy Buffett was in Daytona Beach in May and filmed a spot to air on upcoming Wheel of Fortune episodes:

When the syndicated television game show “Wheel of Fortune” this summer reruns the week-long series of Latitude Margaritaville-themed episodes it originally broadcast last fall, it will include a new segment recently filmed here featuring a surprise guest.

None other than Jimmy Buffett, the singer-songwriter whose music serves as the inspiration for the Latitude Margaritaville 55-and-older active adult community in Daytona Beach.

Buffett made the unannounced appearance May 20 during the filming of a soon-to-be-aired new segment for “Wheel of Fortune.”

The segment, which featured the show’s hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White, was filmed inside the Daytona Beach active adult community’s new Latitude Bar & Chill restaurant, confirmed Bill Bullock, president of the Latitude Margaritaville division for developer Minto Communities.

“We knew Pat and Vanna were coming, but Jimmy was definitely a surprise,” said Bullock, who said he is not allowed to divulge details regarding the segment until it is broadcast this summer.

Vanna White recently posted a photo of herself and Buffett on her Facebook page, which was then re-posted by Latitude Margaritaville residents on a separate social media page devoted to their community.

Several Latitude Margaritaville residents took part as extras during the filming, according to Bullock.

Wheel of Fortune broadcast a week-long series of Latitude Margaritaville-themed shows last fall that included a viewer contest where the grand prize winner was given the choice of a new home at either Minto’s Jimmy Buffett community in Daytona Beach or in Hilton Head, South Carolina, or a cash prize.
