Buffett to Sing National Anthem Before Saints NFC Championship Game

January 16th, 2019


The New Orleans Saints play this Sunday in the NFC Championship against the Los Angeles Rams in the Superdome and one of New Orleans’ favorite sons will perform the national anthem:

It’s not like New Orleans Saints fans really need much help getting amped up for Sunday’s NFC Championship tilt against the Los Angeles Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

But they’re going to get it anyway, and from some noteworthy performers.

Inside the Superdome, Gulf Coast native and Saints superfan Jimmy Buffett — who has not only attended Saints games and practices in the past but has also had Saints head coach Sean Payton perform with him on on-stage — will perform the National Anthem before the game.

This is not the first time Jimmy will sing the national anthem at a Saints game. He last did the deed in 2006.

The NFC Championship game will air at 3:05pm ET on Fox.

Buffett Caddies at Women’s Open Practice Round

July 9th, 2018


Jimmy Buffett was at the Women’s US Open practice round on Monday where he caddied for his niece.

The 71-year-old musician was on hand Monday for a U.S. Senior Women’s Open practice round and appeared to actually serve as a caddie for competitor Patricia Ehrhart.

It’s convenient for Buffett, as the tournament is being contested at Chicago Golf Club (from July 12-15) and he’ll be performing at Wrigley Field on Friday (with a Tuesday gig in Cincinnati in between).

But there’s more than just the matter of convenience: Ehrhart is Buffett’s niece.

Buffett Says He’ll Play Wrigley Field in 2017

December 19th, 2016


Jimmy Buffett played two shows at Wrigley Field in 2005, and he’ll reportedly head back there in 2017 after the Cubs won the World Series this year.

A twitter friend that was listening to Radio Margaritaville heard Jimmy make the pronouncement.

The 2005 Wrigley Field shows were the first ever concerts at the landmark stadium. It took Buffett a decade to persuade the front office to hold a show there. The back-to-back gigs were wildly successful and a live DVD was released a year later: Live at Wrigley Field.
