What Country Music Star Makes The Most Money?
Country music is big business. But just how big is it for the stars.
Who made the most money? And more interesting is how much they made.
Toby Keith has been named the highest-paid country act of 2013 in a new Forbes magazine poll. He earned the top spot after raking in $65 million since June, 2012, according to editors at the finance magazine.
Taylor Swift came in second place after taking in $55 million over the last 12 months thanks to her hit album ‘Red,’ which shifted 1.2 million copies in its first week alone.
Kenny Chesney was at three with $53 million, Tim McGraw landed at four with $33 million and former ‘American Idol’ star Carrie Underwood followed closely behind with $31 million.
