Forbes has an article on Jimmy Buffett’s business empire: How Jimmy Buffett Turned Hit Song ‘Margaritaville’ Into A Multibillion-Dollar Empire

Jimmy Buffett’s classic hit “Margaritaville” is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The song debuted on the 1977 “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes” album and quickly took on a life of its own, becoming a state of mind and way of life rooted in fun and escapism for those “growing older, but not up”.
