Highest Paid Country Music Stars
Who says country music isn’t booming like other genres?
Forbes released its list of the world’s highest-paid country music acts, and Toby Keith landed the number one spot for the second year in a row.
Keith made a whopping $65 million last year, partly because of endorsements deals with companies like Ford.
Trailing a very close second is none other than Taylor Swift, who made $64 million last year. She had a successful world tour and as well as endorsement deals with companies including CoverGirl and Diet Coke.
Number 3, 4, and 5 on the list are Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan, respectively.
