On This Date: Alan Jackson And Jimmy Buffett Team Up For “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere”

“Funny you should ask, Alan.”

There ain’t a person on this planet who doesn’t recognize Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett’s certified banger, “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere.”

It’s the perfect song when it comes to beach drinkin’, day drinkin’, hell maybe even Monday afternoon office drinkin, but no matter what, you can’t physically listen to the song without picturing yourself at a beach bar pounding some tequila like there’s no tomorrow.

It’s also hard to find a song with more one liners as well:

“It’s always five in Margaritaville come to think of it.”

“I’ve been to Margaritaville a few times, stumbled on my way back.”

“What time zone am I on? What country am I in?”

The list goes on… just legendary stuff right there.

Written by Jim “Moose” Brown and Don Rollins, it was released 19 years ago today in 2003. The song spent eight non-consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and won Vocal Event of the Year at the CMA Awards.

What happens when you get a good ol’ boy from Georgia, and a beach king together?

A fuckin’ masterpiece… that’s what.
