Born in in Pascagoula, Mississippi, on Christmas day in 1946, James William Buffett was raised in Mobile, Alabama. He graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi.

In 1977, Buffett released “Margaritaville,” which quickly took on a cult-like following. He became famous for his music about easy and laid-back beach living. He turned his folksy beach music into a billion-dollar empire of restaurants, resorts, and frozen drinks.
