Forbes has released their top 25 highest paid musicians, and country has made its park. Coming in no. 8 is Taylor Swift with a whopping $57 Million. (Yes, I said eight…No. 1 goes to Dr. Dre with $110 Million!). Between Taylor’s records, endorsements, and fragrance line…She’s not going anywhere but to the bank anytime soon.
Tied with Justin Bieber in 10th place is Toby Keith at $55 Million. His tour is always one of the top grossing. Along with his ever-growing I Love This Bar & Grill and his Ford endorsement deal, Toby is making the big bucks.
Kenny Chesney may buy a new island getaway with his $47 Million earned. Then again, selling-out stadiums full of people will do that.
You can see the entire list here which also includes Katy Perry, U2, Elton John and more.
