Jackson releases his single, It’s Five O’ Clock Somewhere, featuring Jimmy Buffet, from his album, Greatest Hits Volume II. Jackson:
The ‘What would Jimmy Buffett do?’ line in the bridge was there from the beginning. It was me being sarcastic, poking a little fun at the ‘What would Jesus do?’ bumper stickers. It happened to be exactly the right thing for that situation. That was the way they brought Buffett into the song, it turned out to be the thing to make the song work for that situation.
