He achieved success in 1977 when his beach-themed song “Margaritaville” propelled him to prominence. Over the years. It gave rise to a number of commercial ventures for him, including a resort, retirement communities, a restaurant chain. A beer brand all of which contributed to his emergence as a billionaire.
