Buffett and Mac Write Theme Song for New Show ‘Barmageddon’

December 6th, 2022

Country artist and television personality Blake Shelton has a new show on USA Network called ‘Barmageddon’ where celebrities compete in pub style games, and Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally wrote the theme song for the show:

Those who tune into “Barmageddon” will hear a lot of music when Blake Shelton and some of his celebrity friends perform at his bar, Ole Red, in Nashville, Tennessee. However, one of the biggest toe-tappers will undoubtedly be the original opening song.

Shelton performs the catchy theme music to “Barmageddon.” While most of what the country singer belts out is great, this song in particular is special because it was written just for him by legendary hitmakers Jimmy Buffett of “Margaritaville” fame and Mac McAnally.

Those two have worked together on many projects in the past; in fact, McAnally has been a member of Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band for decades. While they’ve never fully collaborated with Shelton, all three have been in the music business for most of their adult lives and have crossed paths many times.

You can hear a little of the new song in the video below, starting around the 2:10 mark:
