Trop-Rock Music: The Margaritaville Lifestyle
02:12 PM - Dec 01, 2012
Some Great Artist out there in this Genre..

What is Trop Rock?
Tropical Rock (or Trop-Rock) is a genre of popular music that incorporates elements and influences of Rock and Roll, Country and Caribbean  themes with an island style that represents a laid-back way of life.

Instrumentation is usually acoustic guitar based, and often includes steel drum, congas, marimbas, vibes or other percussion instruments to create an "island sound".

While Country and other musical styles focus on Falling in Love/Falling Out of Love themes, Trop Rock's main focus is on "escapism" -- a laid back lifestyle, tropical places, boating, simplifying and having fun. 

Jimmy Buffett is often referred to as the "Pop of Trop Rock"

Other Major Label artists include:  Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band, Bertie Higgins

Independent singer/songwriters are a major force in Trop Rock music.

Popular Independent Trop Rock artists include 2011 Trop Rock Music Award winners:  The Boat Drunks, Brent Burns, Rob Mehl, James "Sunny Jim" White, Latitude, Kelly McGuire

Trop Rock fans travel the country attending events featuring their favorite Trop Rock artists.  The largest Trop Rock event, "Meeting of the Minds", is held each November in Key West, Florida.  This event features dozens of Trop Rock artists and attracts close to 5,000 fans.

I don't get why country artists do this tbh. Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, hell even Garth Brooks.. I don't get it. Jimmy Buffet is one thing, but this.. Man, this is another..

Well, the biggest issue is that Margaritaville has to be number one. Must be.

TropRock?  The only trop rock I know is listening to Zeppelin, sippin a Captain and coke, whilst dominating the blackjack tables at the Tropicana in Atlantic City.

Because the Gulf is a huge influence, particularly on those who live on the coastline.   The kids growing up in Mobile, or Gulfport, or New Orleans, or Biloxi, or Pensecola, or Galveston really are often the Son of a Son of a Sailor.    They grow up surrounded by the sound, and it becomes a part of them-- and their music is better for it.
