When you think of Jimmy Buffett, you imagine him on lounging in a hammock tied to two palm trees near a tropical turquoise sea while strumming a guitar as his coconut rum drink slowly melts in the heat. However, in reality, Jimmy Buffett is living a much more hard-working existence than the life of leisure that he sings about. In a New York Times profile, Jimmy Buffett reveals his busy, yet sometimes very normal and sometimes very mundane lifestyle that the beloved singer lives.

Since the 1970s, Jimmy has been singing about drinking, hanging out with friends, celebrating island life, and being barefoot on a beach. However, the real Jimmy Buffett is managing the vast empire that he created. From boat shoes to apparel to restaurants to bars to even Broadway musicals, Buffett has 5,000 employees in his multi-million businesses. Sorry Parrotheads, Jimmy’s songs are just songs and he isn’t the beach-loving free spirit that he portrays.
