Buffett Once Rescued SNL Cast Member Colin Jost in St. Barts

July 15th, 2020


In his new memoir ‘Jost the Facts’, SNL Weekend Update host and co-head writer Colin Jost describes a surfing incident in 2014 on St. Barts where Jimmy came to the rescue:

In 2014, Jost and his girlfriend Carmel Lobello were on vacation in St. Barts when Jost met Jimmy Buffett, who told him he was there because he always spends “a few days surfing wherever we open a new Margaritaville.” When Jost went surfing with Buffett and his family, he got “pinned against the rocks by my own leash” and was “bleeding because I sliced my foot open” as five-foot waves crashed into him. Buffett came to his rescue, paddled over to the rocks, and cut Jost loose with the knife that he surfs with — “(which, how awesome is it that Jimmy Buffett swims with a knife??).” The next day, when Jost tried to find Buffett to thank him for saving his life, he learned he “flew himself to Nevis to play golf for the day.”

Buffett Premiers “Down at the Lah De Dah” Music Video

July 3rd, 2020


Jimmy Buffett has released the music video for the song “Down at the Lah De Dah,” premiering it on CMT.com today.

The video, with members of the band in a variety of locations during COVID lockdown, was inspired by a birthday greeting that Lin-Manuel Miranda organized:

What gave me the idea was when Lin-Manuel Miranda, who did Hamilton, made a YouTube video of a birthday greeting to a little girl. He got the idea to get the original cast members and put together a video with them filming themselves, wherever they were. When I saw that, I said, “That’s how we do this!” Fortunately I’ve worked with Lin before and he’s a friend, and I called him and said, “How’d you do that?!” (laughs)

So we took Paul Brady from Dublin, the girls in California, the band in Nashville, me in Malibu, and it looks really great! We used our video director, Stan Kallem, who does all of our roadwork – he’s a pretty talented guy but also knows us, and has been around us enough to know how to “do us” in particular. We took basically what we do at shows, which is try to treat people to a little more than just the songs. We take them on a bit of a vacation. I think he did a brilliant job. I tested it on people from 15 to 75 and it worked!

Buffett Postpones Grand Ole Opry Show

June 19th, 2020


Jimmy Buffett has announced that due to recent spikes in COVID-19, he will postpone his show at the Grand Ole Opry planned for June 27th:

would just like to say how disappointed I am that because of circumstances with the recent spikes in COVID-19, I have had to postpone my trip to Nashville to play with Mac and Brad Paisley. I have loved the Grand Ole Opry since the days I covered shows at the Ryman as a Billboard reporter on Music Row in the early 70s before I moved to Margaritaville. As soon as it is safe for me to travel back to Music City and meet up with Mac and Brad, I will come play for you. Can’t wait. See you then and keep your Fins Up.
