One of the coolest parts about Nashville is you just never know what country star is going to show up and give a surprise performance out of nowhere. On June 21, Jimmy Buffett fans were in for a real treat when the Key West crooner showed up to perform an unscheduled show with his Coral Reefer Band at Nashville's Exit/In, the very same place he first performed in the '70s before he was a major star. This year, the beloved Tennessee club is celebrating its 50th anniversary after first opening its doors in 1971. Over the years they have welcomed a slew of incredible rock and country music performers including Tom Petty, Miranda Lambert, The Police, and more.
As if that wasn't cool enough already, Kenny Chesney showed up to join Buffett on stage for Mac McAnally's "Back Where I Come From" as well as Buffett's signature song "Margaritaville." Would it even be a Jimmy Buffett show without one of his most beloved Billboard topping hits? Chesney shared the performance on social media (as did Buffett) with a special thank you to Buffett for the invite.

"Always a blast being on stage with my friends Jimmy Buffett, Mac McAnally, and the rest of the Coral Reefer Band. Thanks for the invite Jimmy."
It's gearing up to be a busy 2022 for the country superstar who is finally going on a major stadium tour after he had to postpone travel due to the coronavirus pandemic. Though tour dates have obviously changed, Chesney intends on hitting all of the same stadiums as originally planned. He'll kick things off in Tampa and will hit major cities all over the country, including a Nashville show.
