Buffett released his famous “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor” LP in 1978, and sang the title track on “Saturday Night Live” that year, according to a Riverbend press release. The song was written about his grandfather, James Delaney Buffett Sr., who was a huge influence on his life. The tour is called Son Of A Son Of A Sailor as 2018 was the record’s 40th anniversary, and the celebration continues through 2019. The record also includes the hit, “Cheeseburger In Paradise,” a Parrothead favorite, as well as “Livingston Saturday Night” and “Cowboy in the Jungle.”
