Watch Buffett’s New Rendition of “This Land is Your Land”

July 5th, 2021


Jimmy Buffett performed a special version of “This Land is Your Land” on PBS last night:

Jimmy Buffett put a tropical spin on the United States’ most famous folk song during A Capitol Fourth.

During Sunday (July 4) evening’s broadcast on PBS, the multi-platinum selling music legend gave the world premiere of his new version of Woody Guthrie’s 1944 anthem, “This Land Is Your Land,” which was ukulele-infused.

The iconic singer’s pre-taped performance was filmed poolside in Southern California overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Buffett’s performance also incorporated clips of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Grand Canyon, Statue Of Liberty and more.

“I have always been a big admirer of Woody Guthrie’s, his simple songs and poignant lyrics,” Buffett previously said. “They were some of the first songs I learned to play. I have been lucky enough to travel this land and think it is the best song that encapsulates what America means and is.”

Buffett to Perform Special Rendition of “This Land is Your Land” on Capitol Fourth

June 30th, 2021


The 41st annual A Capitol Fourth broadcast will feature Jimmy Buffett performing a special rendition of the Woody Guthrie classic “This Land is Your Land”

This July 4, PBS’ A CAPITOL FOURTH, America’s Independence Day celebration, will feature the world premiere of multi-platinum selling music legend Jimmy Buffett’s inspired version of the Americana classic, “This Land is Your Land.” Taped in Southern California overlooking the Pacific Ocean, interwoven with iconic scenes from across the country including the Golden Gate Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon, the performance also features Coral Reefer band members Mike Utley on keys and Robert Greenidge on steel drums. Originally written in 1940 by folk singer Woody Guthrie, “This Land is Your Land” was not recorded until April, 1944 in New York when Guthrie was on shore leave from the Merchant Marines. In 2002, it became one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry. Buffett previously performed on the 2018 edition of A CAPITOL FOURTH with the Broadway cast of the musical Escape To Margaritaville.

“I have always been a big admirer of Woody Guthrie’s…his simple songs and poignant lyrics,” Buffett remarked. “They were some of the first songs I learned to play. I have been lucky enough to travel this land, and think it is the best song that encapsulates what America means and is.”

You can watch A Capitol Fourth on PBS Sunday, July 4, 2021 from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. ET. The program can also be heard in stereo over NPR member stations nationwide, and will be streaming on Facebook, YouTube and www.pbs.org/a-capitol-fourth and available as Video on Demand for a limited time only, July 4 to July 18, 2021.
