When it comes to making money, these country music artists have no problem. From millions of albums sold, to sold out arena shows, to world tours, these artists are killing it and are making tons of cash.

Mine was Shania Twain, seeing she hasn't had a album or new song out in quite a while, but I guess her stint in Las Vegas helped her cash situation. Here are your top 8:
