If your fantasies consist of tropical paradises and lazy days enjoying the sun, you may be surprised to learn that the Jimmy Buffett career may have gotten its start from entertaining those exact same kinds of thoughts. Mobile, Alabama wasn't exactly a place where Buffett could indulge in the tropical lifestyle of his dreams, so he did the next best thing. He wrote songs about it. For over 40 years, this lyrical genius has been creating stories and putting them to music. He was the originator of the "Gulf and Western" style, which has a country feel to it with a bit of island twang thrown in. Others have copied his sound, but no one does it quite like Buffett. In 2003, Jimmy (along with Alan Jackson) won the Vocal of The Year for the song "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere". At the Academy of Country Music Awards, the song won again as "Single of The Year". It was also awarded Best Video of that same year. The following year, he received his first Grammy nomination for "Best Country Collaboration With Vocals" (again, with Alan Jackson) for "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere". The same year, he was nominated for a People's Choice Award and two CMA awards. Not only is he an extraordinary storyteller and songwriter, he has also produced movies and owns the "Margaritaville Cafe" chain of restaurants. He's been cooking and loving it for many years. Opening a restaurant in honor of the song that really skyrocketed him to fame seemed fitting, but he's also very involved with (co-developed) the "Cheeseburger in Paradise" restaurant idea.
His career may have started with music, but he's pursued many other interests. Saving the manatees from extinction is one of his passions. Because of the wealth and fame he's acquired from his singing career, he's able to make a significant difference in the lives of the animals he's passionate about. He's also deeply involved with "Singing for Change". Singing for Change offers not-for-profit organizations grants to help improve the lives of people, communities and the environment. He loves his fans and relates to them as if he's known each of them forever. Whether you're an old "Parrothead" who's been around throughout the duration of his career, or a fledgling "Parakeet" just discovering his phenomenal music, there are no other fans quite like his. Because of this, they have their very own area on his website where they can purchase all kinds of neat stuff made just for them. Despite what some may think, it's not all about living a life of leisure. Jimmy Buffett (the entertainer) is one who strives to keep his audience happy and entertained. His songs are lighthearted, often full of humor, and just plain fun. But in life off the stage, he has dedicated a lot of his time to helping the less fortunate (be they animal or human). It's not just about creating the Jimmy Buffett career to make money. It's about creating a better world for everyone in it through his music genius.
