NEW YORK (AP) -- Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band are performing a free concert in Gulf Shores, Ala., next month to demonstrate support for residents and businesses stricken by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The CMT cable network said this week it will air a portion of the July 1 concert live from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Eastern. The concert on the beach is being billed as "CMT Presents Jimmy Buffett & Friends Live From the Gulf Coast."

Buffett will be joined by Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown, Allen Toussaint (too-SAHNT'), Jesse Winchester and other guests.

The performance also will be simulcast on Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio, and streamed on the CTM website.
