Jimmy Buffett started out singing country songs in Alabama. After hitting the Florida Keys he developed a laid-back "Parrot Head" style that sent his career up to the superstar status he came to enjoy. Around the time of this song, he was building his following, able to boast of filling the Altamonte Springs Jai Alai Fronton with about 800 fans. A couple of years later, he could gather 2 or 3 thousand drunken rebels to the F.I.T. soccer field in Melbourne Florida.
