National Margarita Day Songs

“Margaritaville” — Jimmy Buffett

Released in 1977, this classic was, of course, inspired by the now-famous cocktail. The chill vibes and mellow chords are all about the laidback, tropical lifestyle. It makes us want to relax and join Buffett “watchin’ the sun bake” with some shrimp on the boil. In addition to this song and the dedicated channel, Buffett has written a book of short stories entitled Tales of Margaritaville. He even owns a chain of restaurants of the same name — his dedication to the drink is second to none!


“She’s Got It All” — Kenny Chesney

In 2018, Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffett collaborated on a duet of Buffett’s 1974 tune “Trying to Reason With Hurricane Season.” It’s no great surprise then that Chesney features on Radio Margaritaville! Written by Craig Wiseman and Drew Womack, Chesney released “She’s Got It All” back in 1997. It was his first number-one hit on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, an accolade he has since achieved many times. The song’s an homage to “the perfect girl,” someone that Chesney admits “only existed in my prayers.” This country tune’s a celebration of everything romantic, and everything Chesney has been “a-hopin’” for.

For more from Kenny Chesney, tune in to No Shoes Radio (Ch. 57) — it’s dedicated to Chesney’s own hits, his personal favorite tracks, and a chilled-out country vibe.


“All I Wanna Do” — Sheryl Crow

Inspired by Wyn Cooper’s 1987 poem “Fun,” Sheryl Crow’s 1994 tune was her breakthrough song and her biggest US hit. The song takes inspiration from other sources too. The opening line refers to the Talking Heads song “Life During Wartime,” while the second line comes from the Jean Harris book Stranger in Two Worlds. Carrying a classic country vibe, the message is more than clear — all Crow wants to do “is have some fun.” And you can too! This hit is upbeat, energetic, and bound to get you singing along — especially after a few margaritas!

If you’re looking for more tracks that make you want to wind the windows down and turn the volume up, check out Road Trip Radio (Ch. 301).


“Chicken Fried” — Zac Brown Band

Is anyone else hungry now? First recorded in 2003 before being re-recorded and released in 2008, this country hit was the first chart single for the Zac Brown Band. With lyrics honoring “love that’s grown in southern ground,” the song is a celebration of the South, perfect for a Mississippi native like Buffett! Patriotism also features heavily in the song’s lyrics, with Brown thanking God for “the stars and stripes.”

Whether you’re sipping a margarita or joining Brown for “a cold beer on a Friday night,” be sure to tune in to Red White & Booze (Ch. 350) for the music of country bars and honky-tonks across America!


“Like a Rolling Stone” — Bob Dylan

One of the most influential songs in music history, Bob Dylan’s hit has cemented its place as an iconic and revolutionary track. The song has been covered by a host of huge names too, including the Jimi Hendrix Experience and the Rolling Stones, and has also been lauded by the likes of Paul McCartney. It’s no wonder that this track, along with other Dylan hits, has made its way onto the Radio Margaritaville lineup!
