jimmy buffettCMT Presents Jimmy Buffett & Friends Live From the Gulf Coast was recently rescheduled to July 11th because of Tropical Storm Alex.

In a benefit concert set to raise awareness for the tragedy surrounding the BP Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Jimmy Buffett alongside Zac Brown Band and Kenny Chesney were scheduled to perform on July 1st.

Due to extenuating circumstances involving Tropical Storm Alex, the Gulf Coast benefit concert has been rescheduled. It is still unclear as to who will be performing at this newly scheduled benefit. Jimmy Buffett and Zac Brown are still on board but Kenny Chesney is not certain he will make this new date.

Jimmy Buffett will be performing on July 11th on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama. Fans were invited to attend this concert absolutely free of charge.

Gulf Shores, Alabama, where Jimmy Buffett and friends will be performing, recently found itself as a victim of the horrific BP Gulf Oil Spill. Oil washed ashore the beaches of Alabama, thus making it a place in which awareness of the BP Oil crisis is much needed. In addition to raising awareness of the BP Gulf Oil Spill, this country benefit concert is set to support the livelihood of all the affected areas.

CMT Presents Jimmy Buffett & Friends Love From the Gulf Coast will air July 11th at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.

In addition to be a live 90-minute commercial-free concert on CMT, the broadcast will be streamed on CMT.com and will be simulcast live on Radio Margaritaville, available on Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio.
