It Costs How Much to Hire Taylor Swift for a Music Gig??????

Taylor Swift

Thanks to Priceonomics and an anonymous source at the booking agency Degy Entertainment, the 22 Words blog has a list of the asking prices of hundreds of musical acts, from the ones who are just slightly more successful than a bar band to the the elite few who ask a million dollars just to show up… …

Country acts like Big & Rich, Dierks Bentley and Kip Moore will show up for $100,000+.  You will pay slightly more for Miranda Lambert, Hunter Hayes or Jake Owen who are asking $150,000+.

If you have big bucks to spend on your party or music gig then go big with Carrie Underwood who will show up for only $4-500,000.  Keith Urban is asking somewhere between $4-600,000 ladies and Taylor Swift will show up for a whopping $1+ million!!!!
