Buffett grew up in Mobile, Alabama where he attended a catholic school, McGill-Toolen and attended Auburn University. Then, he received a Bachelor or Science degree in history from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1969. Jimmy was a brother of Kappa Sigma fraternity.

Before signing a recording contract with Barnaby Records in 1970, Jimmy lived in Nashville and wrote articles for Billboard for a living. A few years later, Jimmy married his second wife, Jane Slagsvol from Columbia, South Carolina, and they had three children, one son named Cameron and two daughters named Savannah Jane and Sarah Delaney.
