Tropical Rock, commonly referred to as "Trop Rock," is a genre of music that blends other genres including Rock, Reggae, Country, Caribbean and Latin with an island, tropical, beach musical arrangements and/or laid-back lifestyle lyrical themed songs. Although Trop Rock has its roots in the beach music scene from the 60's, Jimmy Buffett is often credited as putting Trop Rock "on the map". Crossover music stars like Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown and Jack Johnson have brought the Trop Rock music genre into the mainstream public, resulting in a growing popularity that has opened the door for a whole new generation of island-inspired musicians.
