The Tampa Tribune has an article on the Ultimate Parrothead Contest winner Megan Mohr: “Change In Latitude Changes Attitude”

Megan Mohr and Les Criscillo didn’t just see musician Jimmy Buffett in concert in Boston this summer.

The couple, who met three years ago at a Buffett concert in Tampa, got to go backstage and meet their idol. It was a dream come true for Mohr and Criscillo, who like many Buffett fans call themselves Parrot Heads.

Mohr doesn’t usually have the connections to get a backstage pass, but with the help of her vocal cords won a contest on Sirius satellite radio’s Jimmy Buffett’s Radio Margaritaville.

“I was giddy! I’ve been such a Parrot Head as long as I can remember,” Mohr said.

The contest required contestants to call in and sing 20 seconds of a Buffett song. She sang the woman’s part in a “Son of a Son of a Sailor.” One thousand people entered, and she was one of five finalists.
