MS Gulf Coast could have beach named after Jimmy Buffett

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Mississippi legislators are working to name a Gulf Coast beach for the native son who wrote and sang "Margaritaville."
           
Representatives voted 119-1 on Monday to pass House Bill 886 , which would designate a sandy stretch in Pascagoula as Buffett Beach.
           
Singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett was born in Pascagoula and grew up in Mobile, Alabama.
           
The 69-year-old Buffett also wrote "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes."
           
The beach-naming bill moves to the state Senate for more debate.
