Fishbowl Spirits, LLC, has appointed David Farmer as President, effective immediately. Singer-songwriter Kenny Chesney wholly owns Fishbowl Spirits, the entity through which Chesney created and produces Blue Chair Bay Rum.

Farmer will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of Fishbowl Spirits’ operations and will report to Chesney, Fishbowl Spirits’ Chairman.

Farmer will continue to serve as Chesney’s tour manager, coordinating more than 100 employees during Chesney’s tours. Farmer was worked with the franchise for 18 years.

“Kenny understands how to create not just an incredible show, but a real connection with his fans,” says Farmer. “My goal is to harness that energy and translate that excitement into the Blue Chair Bay brand.”

Named Country Music Association’s Tour Manager of the Year in 2012, Farmer is also a long-standing member of the Business Hall of Fame at East Tennessee State University, where he and Chesney were friends and roommates.

“I’ve known David since we were kids playing football on the street. No one knows me and the things I stand for better than David. His business abilities have helped me take my music from bars to football stadiums. He will bring the same passion, management skills and attention to detail to Blue Chair Bay Rum,” said Chesney.
