Jimmy Buffet gave a voice and lilting melodies to the ‘beach bum’, ‘island escapism’ lifestyle. His music has been described as surf rock, country pop, "gulf and western”; and Jimmy himself has branded his music as "drunken caribbean rock 'n' roll”. Buffet’s four-decade career has been riding on a tidal wave of hit songs like "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes," "Cheeseburger in Paradise," "If the Phone Doesn't Ring, It's Me," "Margaritaville," "Volcano," and "Gypsies in the Palace." He has released 27 studio albums, nine compilation albums, and 12 live albums. His song “Margaritaville” was ranked at number 234 on the Recording Industry Association of America's list of "Songs of the Century”. His devoted and loyal fanbase who flock to his concerts are playfully called “Parrotheads”. His laid-back music has also fueled his entrepreneurial spirit. He owns two restaurant chains named after two of his best-known songs, "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Margaritaville".
