Organizers expect to accommodate up to 35,000 people at the event, which will be held on the beach in Gulf Shores, AL, where Gulf Shores Parkway (Highway 59) meets the coast.

"There are always welcome breaks in every storm but the unfortunate reality is that this disaster is not going away for a while -- but a few hours of fun, void of the constant reminders of the situation, is a good thing and that is basically what I do," said Jimmy Buffett.

"I thank Jimmy Buffett and these other great artists for coming to perform on Alabama's coast. Their music will lift up spirits and help encourage visitors to come here and enjoy our world famous Southern hospitality," said Governor Bob Riley of the State of Alabama.

"Music has healing powers and who better than Jimmy and friends to summon them up?" said Brian Philips, President, CMT. "It is CMT's privilege to present this special. We send a message to the people of the Gulf Coast that our audience -- and the world -- stands beside them."

"Gulf Shores is at the center of the vast coastline affected by the oil spill, and we hope that people from all across this beautiful stretch of America will come down, support local businesses on the way, and enjoy some great music to elevate an important cause," said John Hamlin, SVP, Music Events and Talent, CMT.

CMT PRESENTS JIMMY BUFFETT & FRIENDS: LIVE FROM THE GULF COAST is produced by the State of Alabama, the City of Gulf Shores, AL, CMT and Live Nation. Local promotional services are provided by Mobile-based Huka Entertainment.
