After initially embarking on a country music career, having signed his first record contract in 1970, Jimmy Buffett first came to prominence in the mid-1970s. Buffett moved from Nashville to Key West and, upon adopting an affable “beach bum” persona, gained a loyal following of fans, known as “Parrotheads”.
