Monday Musings on All Things Southern

Hey, y'all!

It's time for another game of Who Am I?

I was born on Christmas Day, 1946 in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Southern born, baby! I'm known more for my singing and my songwriting, but I've also written three #1 best sellers. 

I am one of only eight authors to have accomplished reaching #1 on both the fiction and the nonfiction best-seller lists. Among the other seven were Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, and Dr. Seuss.

One of my fiction titles is Tales of Margaritaville (okay, that probably gives me away!). My best-selling nonfiction work is titled A Pirate Looks at Fifty. Not to try to overly impress you, but I have also co-written two children's books with my eldest daughter, Savannah.

Who am I?
