Jimmy Buffett Joins Eli Young Band for ‘Saltwater Gospel’

August 21st, 2020


The Eli Young Band has recruited Jimmy Buffett for a ‘Fins up version’ of their song “Saltwater Gospel”:

Originally released in 2016, the song was never a major hit at country radio, but lead singer Mike Eli says he always thought this song stood out.

“We’d always known from the early days of playing ‘Saltwater Gospel’ live that it was special. Crowds would sing along as if it was already a huge hit. Our team noticed a massive swell of streaming recently and some radio stations began playing it again. With signs there was more life to this song, the idea of re-releasing a fresh version was really exciting for us to explore,” he explains. “We aimed high thinking how cool it would be to have Jimmy Buffett, but finding out he was interested, we were pumped! He’s an icon who’s made a huge impact on the world with fans completely devoted to his persona and laidback party environment. Plus, he likes a drink now and then, and so do we.”

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.”
