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:

Buffett to Appear in Episode of ‘Blue Bloods’

November 19th, 2021

Jimmy Buffett recently filmed an appearance on the CBS drama ‘Blue Bloods.’

From MonstersandCritics.com:

A music legend is coming to Blue Bloods.

While it’s been known for a while that Lyle Lovett will be reprising his role as Texas Ranger Waylon Gates, it’s now confirmed that the series will feature an appearance by famed musician/author/actor Jimmy Buffett.

What role he’ll play on the show is unknown, but it looks like he’ll be having a good time.

The singer has done some acting, mostly in cameo roles like Jurassic World. His biggest part was Frank Bama, a former military veteran turned helicopter pilot in several episodes of Hawaii Five-0.

As the episode is currently filming, it likely won’t air until early next year. It’s uncertain what kind of role Buffett will have.

Wahlberg posted a photo of himself and Buffett filming together at Rockaway Beach in Queens, New York.
