Caroline Jones on What It’s Like Touring with Jimmy

April 1st, 2020


SongFacts.com has an interview with Caroline Jones where she discusses what it is like going on tour with Jimmy Buffett:

Songfacts: What’s it like being on tour with Jimmy Buffett?

Jones: It’s really, really fun. It’s a whole culture and a whole lifestyle in itself. In the beginning it was something to get used to because I hadn’t seen it before, but the Parrot Heads are just such a special, unique group of people and it’s so interesting because they’re all walks of life with all different jobs – doctors and lawyers by day and then at night they put a parrot on their head and have a margarita in their hand and are wearing a Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops.

Something that touring with Jimmy taught me is the value of a shared value system, and also imagination. Being able to imagine yourself in his song in a place where you have no responsibilities and no burdens and no cold weather and you’re just living free and unburdened. That emotion through music is so powerful for people that they spend their hard-earned money to go to that show and feel those feelings. It’s really powerful and really special. It’s the power of art and music, and Jimmy has tapped into that very authentically because that’s what he loves. He changes people’s lives. He inspires them through that.

Songfacts: Can you elaborate on “shared value system”?
