The Pensacola News Journal has an article: “McAnally looks forward to Buffett’s museum show” (Jimmy Buffett at the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola Florida, Thursday April 28th)
Mac McAnally will accompany Buffett in an intimate performance Thursday night at the National Naval Aviation Museum. In a phone interview, McAnally said the sold-out fundraising concert is something that he and Buffett are both excited about.
“We were just bragging about that show last night in Raleigh,” McAnally said. “Jimmy’s been a longtime supporter of the military and the Wounded Warrior Project, and so have I, drafting off him in the NASCAR sense. Both of our fathers were connected to the military. (Jimmy) is a sailor and a military historian, so the Navy and the air, it’s an interest to him. I hesitate to speak for him, but I know there’s a passion there. There’s nothing not to like.”
McAnally said the show will consist of he and Buffett on guitar, accompanied by steel drummer Robert Greenidge. “It’s a reincarnation of what we did two years ago in Tahiti,” McAnally said. “We enjoy playing that configuration, so we’re looking forward to it.”
McAnally said he’s looking forward to seeing the museum for the first time. “I’m somebody who takes being an American seriously,” he sad. “My father was one of seven brothers who were all military. Out of my musician circle of friends in Nashville, I’ve had a couple of friends that have told me I needed to see the museum, so I’m looking forward to it. And I’m honored to be a part of all of this.
