The Pascagoula native grew up beside the the Gulf of Mexico, attending McGill-Toolin, Auburn and Southern Miss back when he also busked a living out on Bourbon St.
His sister, Lucy, owns the well-known Lulu’s in Gulf Shores. And of course, Buffett’s brand is all over Margaritaville Beach Resort on Pensacola Beach and Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi.
Buffett released his famous “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor” LP in 1978, and sang the title track on “Saturday Night Live” that year. The song was written about his grandfather, James Delaney Buffett Sr., who was a huge influence on his life.
The tour is called “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor” as 2018 was the record’s 40th anniversary, and the celebration continues through 2019. The record also includes the hit, “Cheeseburger In Paradise,” a Parrothead favorite, as well as “Livingston Saturday Night” and “Cowboy in the Jungle.”
