Early years

Jimmy Buffett was born on December 25, 1946, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. His parents were James Delaney Buffet and Mary Lorraine Buffet. Jimmy was a trombone player in the school band at St. Ignatius School. Jimmy’s music depicts sails because he was exposed to sailing as a child with his sailor grandfather. Later, he moved to Fairhope, Alabama, where he attended McGill Institute for Boys and graduated in 1964.

Jimmy Buffer graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, with a bachelor’s degree in history in 1964. He worked as a correspondent for Billboard magazine in Nashville after graduation.

Musical Success and Early Career

Jimmy Buffett began his musical career in the late 1960s as a country singer. Then, in 1970, he released his debut album, ‘Down to Earth,’ followed by High Cumberland Jubilee. Between 1973 and 1976, Jimmy released albums such as ‘A White Sports Coat and a Pink Crustacean,’ ‘Living & Dying in 34 Time,’ ‘A1A,’ ‘Havana Daydreamin,’ and ‘Changes in Latitudes,’ ‘Changes in Attitudes,’ and the breakthrough hit song ‘Margaritaville.’

Jimmy’s tours made him far more money in the 1980s, and he became a popular draw. He continued to release albums that were primarily dedicated to his fans. Jimmy also changed his band’s name from the ‘Coral Reefer Band’ to the ‘Coral Reef Band’ in order to comply with the HLS&R’s request because ‘reefers’ was a drug-related reference.

Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reef Band even performed on the White House lawn for then-President Bill Clinton in August 2000. He has released over 30 albums to date, eight of which have gone gold and nine of which have gone platinum or multi-platinum. In 2003, he received his first Country Music Award for his song “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere.” Jimmy was also nominated for a CMA Event of the Year award in 2007 for his song “Hey Good Lookin.”
