More info from the Amway Center press release:
“…Among the 30+ albums Buffett has released, eight are gold albums and nine are platinum or multi-platinum. His latest album, “Songs from St. Somewhere,” was released last August. In 2003, Buffett won his first Country Music Award (CMA) for his song, “It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere,” with Alan Jackson and was nominated again in 2007 for the CMA Event of the Year award for his song, “Hey Good Lookin,” featuring Alan Jackson and George Strait.
This year’s tour celebrates Buffett’s 40th touring season. The popularity of his trademark Key West and laid back atmosphere at his live shows gained a devoted following of fans, called Parrottheads. Buffett consistently earns a spot on Billboard’s highest grossing tours. In 2014, he ranked number 32 as music’s top 40 money makers.
