Buffett and Zac Brown Band Tape CMT Crossroads Episode

December 10th, 2009

Wednesday night Jimmy Buffett and the Zac Brown Band taped their episode of CMT Crossroads at The Factory in Franklin, TN. Linda Zettler of The Tennessean has an article on the filming:

Jimmy Buffett had this reaction when he saw the Zac Brown Band in concert: ‘e2’80’9cHe reminds me of what I was doing 25 years ago and it’e2’80’99s nice to see that passed on.’e2’80’9d

No one’s sound is completely his own, Buffett said on Wednesday night in Franklin during a taping of CMT’s genre-mixing performance series Crossroads; Buffett’s own work was informed by Harry Belafonte, for one.

So in that spirit, during the taping, Buffett announced the passing of the “tiki torch.”

“Here’s the torch, man,” Buffett said, motioning to Brown and then adding, I’m not going anywhere.”
