Parrot-heads are putting Jimmy Buffett back on the Billboard charts. Buffett's top ten classic "Margaritaville" re-enters the Hot 100 singles chart at number 38. His 1985 greatest hits album "Songs You Know By Heart" is back on the Billboard 200 album chart at number four this week. In addition, Buffett's 1992 boxed set "Boats Beaches Bars and Ballads" re-entered the album chart at number 53.

A Vincent van Gogh painting worth millions was returned this week, more than three years after it was stolen from a museum in the Netherlands. A thief used a sledge hammer to break into the museum on March 30th, 2020, the Dutch post-impressionist's birthday and walked out with the 1884 painting under his arm. An anonymous tipster returned it on Monday to a Dutch art crime detective. The painting is being temporarily kept at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

A new study indicates there's a good chance you're happy if you're living in the Sunshine State. Wallethub is naming Florida the eighth happiest state in the nation. The personal finance website ranked the states on 30 key metrics ranging from the depression rate and the share of adults feeling productive to income growth and the unemployment rate. Florida ranked second overall in the category of emotional and physical well-being, behind only Hawaii. Utah tops the list as the happiest state, while West Virginia is ranked last.

The WWE is bringing a major event to Florida. Professional wrestling fans in the Tampa Bay area have something exciting to look forward to early next year. WWE officials have announced that the 37th annual Royal Rumble is happening at Tropicana Field in January. Events associated with the wrestling spectacle will be going on around Saint Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa between January 27th and 29th. Amalie Arena will be hosting Monday Night Raw as part of the event.

A country music legend will be going back on the road. George Strait is, once again, teaming up with Chris Stapleton for a series of stadium concerts next year. The pair set a number of attendance records during their sold out run this year, including in Seattle, Milwaukee, and Columbus, Ohio. They'll kick off their 2024 tour on May 4th in Indianapolis--one week later, they'll be in Florida at Everbank Stadium in Jacksonville. Strait and Stapleton will hit eight other cities through December.

Snoop Dogg is sharing the teaser for "The Big Payback," a film where he plays a cold-blooded killer. The video posted to Instagram features the rapper narrating the killer's motivation. It cuts to Snoop's character waiting in a dark room eating a bowl of his Snoop Cereal. Snoop Dogg didn't give any details on the film's release date.
