With songs like If I Had A Boat, On A Slow Boat To China, Boat Drinks and Son Of A Son Of A Sailor, few musicians are more associated with boating than Jimmy Buffett. The singer-songwriter is also an avid boater who owns all kinds of watercraft.

Covid-19 has kept Buffett and his band off the concert stage for the first time in 40 years, but he's come up with some alternatives. He’s giving online concerts for first responders, and he’s released a new album.

So, if you’re missing the man who gave you your Cheeseburger In Paradise, sit back, turn up the volume and return to Margaritaville with the master of island escapism in this video from CBS Sunday Morning.
