Do you know what Trop Rock Music is? I didn’t until a few years ago even though I had been listening for many years.
According to Wikipedia, Trop Rock Music is defined as a genre of music that has elements and influences of rock, reggae, country, Caribbean and calypso music giving the songs an island style. One of the main artists in this genre is Jimmy Buffett but also includes Jack Johnson, Zac Brown Band, Alan Jackson and many more. You can even listen to this music on Radio Margaritaville.
Since I’ve always been a beach girl at heart, I’ve loved island music. About a month ago, I got to see Jimmy Buffett in concert and I don’t think I sat down for the entire concert. I knew just about every song because I play Trop Rock Music almost daily. My poor husband is such a sweetie that even though it isn’t his favorite, he lets me play it as much and as loud as I like. 🙂
If you like the beach and the coast as much as me, give Trop Rock music a try. I think you’ll fall in love with the easygoing vibe that makes you just want to feel the sand beneath your feet and gaze out at the ocean.
