Forbes magazine has released their list of the Highest Paid Country Artists, and they’ve sure made a killing.
Garth Brooks topped the list for the third year in a row, raking in a mere $60 Million followed by Kenny Chesney and Luke Bryan earning $42 Million.
See the top 10 below.
1: Garth Brooks, $60 million
2: Kenny Chesney, $42.5 million
3: Luke Bryan, $42 million
4: Dolly Parton, $37 million
5: Toby Keith, $34.5 million

I’m not sure how any of these folks can survive off those kinda earnings. . . (insert sarcasm here). Thankfully with these massive earnings, country music continues to be one of the most giving genres, supporting causes and charities both local and internationally.
