Jimmy Buffett will be broadcasting a concert via drive-in theaters to the delight of Americana fans across the nation.

Chickasha's Chief Drive-In Theatre will be one of many drive-ins across the country participating in the live streamed event. The concert will take place at 7 p.m. on June 19. 

The unique concept of broadcasting a show live through the medium of a drive-in was conceived by Brandt Wood, Coyote Drive-In Producer. 

Wood said that he met Buffett backstage after a performance and presented the idea to the Margaritaville high commissioner. 

"He said, 'That's crazy! Let's do it!'" Wood said. 

It's a week before the big broadcast, but Wood has high hopes for this musical vision on the outdoor big screen. 

"It is most certainly a history making event," Wood said. He added that he hopes there will be more drive-in concerts to come. 

Tickets for the Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band Live at the Drive-In can be purchased online at
