TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WFLA) — A Florida lawmaker recently filed a bill aiming to rename an iconic state highway after the late singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. On Friday, Rep. Chuck Clemons filed HB-91, which would rename SR-A1A to 'Jimmy Buffett Memorial Highway' along Florida's east coast – all the way from the Georgia state line to Key West. Born and raised on the Gulf coast, Buffett carved out a niche in popular music with hits like 'Margaritaville' and 'Cheeseburger in Paradise,' combining elements of the country, rock and folk genres, with a tropical twist.
