Product Description

Mega-stars Alan Jackson, George Strait, and Jimmy Buffett joined together for the first time ever, Saturday, May 29, 2004, at Texas Stadium in Dallas. This must see concert turned into a party that Parrotheads, cowboys and the Lone Star State will never forget. With more than 120 million records sold, over 80 Number One singles and countless awards under their hats (or Hawaiian shirts), the superstars shared equal billing to showcase some of their biggest hits and fan favorites alone and together.The three of us have talked about doing this for some time, admits Strait We've had the pleasure of working with each other before and not only do we enjoy each other's music but we have a lot in common.

Recorded live at Dallas's Texas Stadium in 2004, this long-delayed release is worth the wait. Over 15 tracks, the three superstars sing together, separately, and in pairs for what turns out to be both a musical treat and a long draw of fun. Strait, who normally stands stock still in concert, loosens up and--surprise!--talks between songs ("That's country right there now"), and if my ears heard right, may actually say the word "ass." His is the strongest section musically, as he uses the western-swing classic "Milk Cow Blues" to stretch out with a fine showcase of his Ace in the Hole Band, and brings Jackson out for a masterful version of their hit "Murder on Music Row." But Jackson's set offers a personality-rich rendition of "Where I Come From," as well as a bluegrass version of Steve Young's "Seven Bridges Road" and a sturdy cover of "Texas Women," Hank Williams Jr.'s exercise in Lone Star braggadocio. Buffett gets a little too cute on "Margaritaville," on which over-the-top chorines shout, "Salt! Salt! Salt!" But when Jackson and Strait join him for a rousing romp through "Hey, Good Lookin'," you can almost see the ghost of Hank Sr. dancing in the aisles. --Alanna Nash

For people who like Jimmy Buffett, the world's richest beach bum, springtime brings great anticipation.

Springtime means the Big Kahuna is going on tour and a Jimmy Buffett tour means it's time to break out the flip-flops, tropical party favors, the Margarita machine and Buffett's latest album.

Parrotheads (Jimmy's fans) are lining up for "Live at Texas Stadium," recorded with George Strait and Alan Jackson during their 2004 stadium mega- show in Irving.

During their long careers, Jackson, Strait and Buffett have separately released over "85 number one singles, and sold more than 120,000,000 records," according to a press release from MCA-Nashville, the record's distributor.

Although Buffett is famous for "Margaritaville," he actually got his start in country music, working in Nashville during the late 1960s. It wasn't until good friend Jerry Jeff Walker took him to Key West that Buffett discovered the island point of view, his considerable song writing skills and developed his happy, laid back style of music.

Buffett and Strait team up on three cuts, "All My Ex's Live in Texas," Hank Williams' "Hey, Good Looking" and "Sea of Heartbreak." Strait's smooth vocal styling is the perfect foil for Buffett's world-weathered sound.

If you're from the 50s or even the early 60s and you grew up in the south, Jimmy and King George's cover of the Don Gibson hit "Sea of Heartbreak" might evoke memories of a Saturday night when your parents were going out on the town. They were all dressed up, with Hi-Fi playing the latest dance tune. Cha-cha-cha.

Of course, Buffett and Jackson do a great turn on the Grammy-nominated "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere," their huge 2003 hit.

If there was ever anything that could be called a sure thing it is this live recording from Texas Stadium that brings together individually, in duets and trios, a cowpoke, a country boy and a parrothead. George Strait, Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett are kindred spirits who have all worked together in the past and shine in the various combinations here.

This is a perfect, laid back, summertime tailgating outing. Nothing too serious, much tongue in cheek as the three headliners comprise the perfect mutual admiration society. Everyone one stage is having fun, the audience is having a good time as you will in the comfort of your home or your truck.

The stars came out to play and now all you need to complete the fun is some fried chicken, greasy burgers and beer and a pitcher of margaritas and count the days until summer.

I have to say this is one one of the most enjoyable CDs I have listened to. I am a big George Strait fan but had only listened to a little Buffet and virtually no Jackson. What a pleasant surprise! Of course, I love Cowboys Like Us, but I've played Designated Drinker, Five O'Clock Somewhere, and Where I Come From over and over and over. There' not a bad track on the disc. And you can't help but smile listening to how much fun these guys are having together. A friend of mine will be 50 tomorrow and I bought one for him for his birthday. Great!

You just can't go wrong with this one. To have Alan Jackson redo Hank Jr's "Texas Women" just makes it that much better. George, Alan, and Jimmy sound great by themselves and together as well as the rowdy crowd. For a live recording they caught everything so open up a cold beer, throw some meat on the pit, and crank it up!

I've been a fan of Jimmy Buffett most of my life, and George Strait for about the same, and grew to like Alan after Five O'clock.

This is a great CD if you enjoy these musicians. "Murder On Music Row" is a good old fashioned sounding country song and makes references I don't get to the business, but I understand the context.

"All My Ex's Live In Texas"...ah yes. Great song, and more fun with Buffett adding some spice to it. Great version.

"Sea Of Heartbreak" An undiscovered classic from Buffett. He knows its a good song, I know it is, and you will when you hear it.

"Margaritaville", "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere"....these had to be on there, and It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere is better live like this. Actually its better if you're in the arena...

A lot of good music, the show is very energetic and the songs fit together well. I highly recommend this disc.

Loved the material and up to usual expectations of material from the 3 legends BUT with the interaction which we could only listen to...we had to resort to using imaginations again. Would have loved the DVD of this item.

Was it a marketing ploy to issue the CD first and then just when the dust settled YES! YES! Those who bought......... it's now available on DVD!

But then again something to look forward to --maybe?

Cheers

Many of today's live recordings bring the better parts of a studio recording together with the emotions of a live performance ... this is not one of them. Each artist hides his talents well on this CD. Even the normally polished George Strait comes off amateurish. Jimmy Buffett exemplifies the role of the overbearing parrot that serves as his mascot. Do yourself a favor and skip this one for a studio album by any of the three performers.
