What would you do with a year off? Travel? Start that novel? Finish restoring the classic car you started years ago? Learn to play the guitar and join a band?

Blue Chair Bay, Kenny Chesney’s premium rum collection, is inviting fans and followers to live out whatever dream they might have. One lucky winner will receive a cash prize of $50,000, the U.S. median annual salary. No resume required. There’s also no guarantee that Kenny will let you join his band, but how cool is that?

All you have to do is write a short essay and complete a couple of easy tasks. The easiest of which is purchasing a bottle of Blue Chair Bay Rum. Even if you don’t win, you’ll still have the rum. Win/win, right?

Blue Chair Bay’s “Take a Year Off” contest is currently underway. It runs until September 30, 2017. An expert panel that includes editors at Rolling Stone Magazine and Parade Magazine will pick the winner.

Key Lime Rum Cream

Memories of beach vacations with family and friends and the spirit of freedom from everyday commitments is what inspired Blue Chair Bay to create this unique contest. Flavors include coconut, banana, vanilla and key lime cream as well as traditional white rum.

I’m only slightly obsessed with the key lime cream. It’s really smooth and well, creamy, with a nice key lime kick. I’ve always been a margarita and tequila kind of girl, but Blue Chair Bay has won me over. I’m seeing lots of mojitos, painkillers, rum swizzles and maybe some pina coladas in my future. National Rum Day is coming up …

Another thing I’m obsessed with is the gorgeous bottle. I love the small details like that propeller, anchor and seashell on the neck sticker. I may just have to buy all of them for the bottle. Yeah, that’s it. I’m buying it for the bottle.

What would you do with a year off? I’m pretty sure my year off would involve islands, soft sand, swaying palm trees and maybe a boat drink or two.

Visit for lots of creative rum recipes. If you’re looking for a little background music to go with your rum rendezvous, turn up Sirius XM’s No Shoes Radio. Yes, Kenny has his own radio station. No, I’m not affiliated. I just like good music. And rum. Don’t forget the rum.
