Keep The Party Going comes just over seven months since the death of the Grammy-nominated singer from Merkel cell skin cancer, a rare and aggressive skin cancer.

Shortly after his death, Buffett’s sister Laurie Buffett McGuane and her husband, author Tom McGuane, opened up to PEOPLE about their loss, with Tom describing his friend of over 50 years as “always high-spirited, fun-loving, hard working and creative.”

He added, “It is remarkable to be able to say that he remained the same during the last month of his life. His sense of humor was fully intact. God bless him for keeping himself that way.”

Tributes poured out for the musician/entrepreneur in the days and months following his death, including several from some of the hitmakers on the Keep the Party Going bill.

During the 2023 CMA Awards in November, country superstars like Chesney, 55, McAnally, 66, Alan Jackson and Zac Brown Band teamed up to say goodbye and deliver a moving joint tribute, which included songs like “A Pirate Looks at Forty,” “Adios My Friend” and “Margaritaville.”

At the New York City tour stop of the Eagles' farewell tour, The Long Goodbye, at Madison Square Garden in September, the rockers took a moment to pay their respects to the singer-songwriter by playing his tracks “Come Monday” and “Fins.”

McCarthy was among the artists featured on Buffett’s final album, Equal Strain on All Parts, which was released posthumously in November of last year. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer joined the tropical rocker on the track “My Gummie Just Kicked In,” while musicians like Angelique Kidjo, Emmylou Harris, Lennie Gallant, Will Kimbrough and the Preservation Jazz Hall Band also made appearances on the project.

Fans can listen to Equal Strain on All Parts now and secure tickets to Keep the Party Going later this week.
