    This very popular summer, style of music took hold a few years ago. Boz Scaggs, Seals and Crofts, Christopher Cross, are known as Yacht Rock artists. Know one really knows why it’s attached to a yacht. Maybe because these artists have large boats?

They’ve trademarked the term “yacht rock,” both metaphorically and literally (U.S. Registration Number 3834195).

While ​rising from bars to amphitheaters, t​hey’ve ticked every box on the Rock Star Accomplishments bingo card. Except for one: Writing and singing their own songs.
