Find Out Which Country Artists Made Forbes Highest Paid List

Garth Brooks

While former-country singer Taylor Swift took the #1 spot this year (she made $170 million in the past year!), there are a few current country stars who made Forbes’ list of the Highest Paid Celebrities.

Garth Brooks is the highest paid country artist on the list, bringing in $70 million from music sales and his tour, which landed him at the number 15 spot on the list.  Kenny Chesney comes in at number 26 with $56 million thanks to his music, tours, Costa sunglasses and Blue Chair Bay rum company.  Luke Bryan brought in $53 million, landing him at number 37.

Other country artists on the list include Toby Keith at #47 with $47.5 million, Jason Aldean at #75 with $36.5 million.

According to Forbes, rankings are based on “numbers from Nielsen, Pollstar, Box Office Mojo, Songkick and IMDB, as well as interviews with industry insiders and many of the stars themselves;” agent, manager and laywer fees have not been deducted.
