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.

Thomas Rhett Takes Over Taylor Swift’s 8 Year Reign For A 6-Week #1

Thomas Rhett

Thomas Rhett declares the top spot once again on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week as his megahit “Die A Happy Man” spends its sixth consecutive week at No. One. The last artist to hold the same reign over the chart was Taylor Swift exactly eight years ago with “Our Song.”

“I seriously can’t believe this song has spent six weeks at No. one,” said Thomas Rhett. “When you put a song out there as personal as this, you hope it connects and resonates with people. But I could never have imagined it would connect like this! And to mirror an achievement not seen since Taylor Swift – someone I really respect as a songwriter, performer and entertainer – is just mind blowing.”

“The biggest country song in the nation right now” (Omaha World-Herald) continues to serve as the best-selling country digital track and simultaneously tops Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for an 11th week. Thomas Rhett continues to bring his signature “sizzling fusion of soul, funk, R&B and country as his own” (Rolling Stone) to his live show as direct support for Jason Aldean’s WE WERE HERE 2016 TOUR, where he has proven he knows “how to please a full house” (City County Observer).
