Get ready, Parrot Heads, because Jimmy Buffett is set to make his Grand Ole Opry debut.

The Opry shared the news on Tuesday (June 6), revealing that Buffett will make his debut on the legendary stage alongside Opry member Brad Paisley and award-winning singer/songwriter/musician Mac McAnally.

Buffett will step into the Circle on Saturday, June 27 for the 4,930th broadcast of the Saturday Night Grand Ole Opry Show. 

Known for his carefree, island-inspired music, Jimmy Buffett is known for songs like “Margaritaville” and “Come Monday.” In 2003, Buffett collaborated with country superstar Alan Jackson on the song “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.” The track was a massive hit and spent eight non-consecutive weeks at No.1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Buffett’s first studio album in seven years, Life On The Flipside, was released last week and was produced by McAnally.

Shows with live audiences at the Grand Ole Opry remain paused, however, fans can tune in each week via live stream or WSM Radio.
