Who’s Your Sugar Daddy? Toby Keith Is The Highest Paid Country Artist!
Who’s rolling in the dough? Forbes magazine should know. They just released its list of the World’s Highest-Paid Musicians and as luck or good fortune (and a little bit of talent) should have it, several of country music’s biggest names are seeing plenty of green.
Toby Keith is the highest-grossing country artist, hauling in $50 million last year. Taylor Swift’s finances are not far behind, with $45 million earned. Brad Paisley trails Taylor by five million. Tim McGraw is tied with both Beyoncé and Muse, who all earned $35 million. Rascal Flatts split $34 million, while Kenny Chesney, in spite of taking some time off of touring made $30 million.
On the overall list, U2 came in at the No. 1 spot, raking in a hefty sum of $195 million. Bon Jovi land in the second spot, with $125 million earned. The third slot belongs to Elton John, who gleaned $100 million, while Lady Gaga stays close to Elton with $90 million. Michael Bublé rounds out the Top 5 with $70 million earned.
