Toby Keith Tops Forbes List of Highest Paid Country Stars!

toby keith

Toby Keith topped Forbes magazine’s list of this year’s highest-paid country artists with $65 million.  Toby is keeping it all in the family working his owl record label, playing his own bar, and drinking his own booze.

“I can put them on that 30-city tour. I don’t have to look for a place to play. It’s cost-effective as crap,” he explained. “They’re in Toby’s house. They’re drinking Toby’s liquor. That’s Toby’s act. And then we’re moving to the next town.”

Rounding out the top five are Taylor Swift ($64 million), Kenny Chesney ($44 million), Jason Aldean ($37 million), Luke Bryan ($34 million) and Zac Brown Band ($29 million). See the complete list here.

Taylor Swift is a force to be reckon with. She comes in at number 18 on Forbes Celebrity 100 list with earnings of about $64 million thanks to world wide sold-out tours, album sales, and countless endorsement deals with Cover Girl, Keds, and more.

Toby Keith also makes the list at no. 51 thanks to his own record label, I Love This Bar And Grill restaurants, a multimillion-dollar endorsement deal with Ford, and his own Wild Shot mescal.

Kenny Chesney
rolls in at no. 70… and well, that needs no explanation.

Toby Keith Braves Minnesota Downpour To Headline Winstock Music Festival

toby keith

Saturday’s tour stop at the Winstock Music Festival in Winsted, Minnesota was anything but the usual for singer-songwriter, entertainer Toby Keith. A storm stretching from the Texas Panhandle to the Great Lakes with unrelenting rain, 20-30 mph winds, and lightning hit hard and made it nearly impossible for Keith to go on stage. Threatening as it was, Toby Keith delayed the start of his set and went on to perform in the rain with the fans that packed festival grounds, who all stayed until the last note.

“We found a window of time where lightning was at a safe distance and we went on,” tour manager David Milam noted.

The rain continued throughout the show, causing some equipment damage including the loss of video projectors and HD cameras. They were also unable to do some of the pyro/flames due to the winds. A few early acts were unable to perform because of lightning in the area.

Currently on his Shut Up And Hold On Tour Presented by Ford F-Series, Toby Keith will be performing next in Washington D.C. on June 28. The trek includes support from Colt Ford and Keith’s daughter Krystal Keith. The latter also performed at the Winstock Music Festival before the brunt of the storm began.
