Forbes Magazine has just released the Highest paid Country Stars list and guess who’s at the top of that list?

Yep, Toby Keith. He made a cool $50 million from May 2010-May 2011. Of course, his singing tours and album sales made a lot of  that, but also contributing was his I Love this Bar and Grill Restaurant chain, his new Mezcal drink, Wild Shots liquor business, and his endorsement deal with Ford Trucks. The Forbes list puts Taylor Swift at #2 with $45 million, Brad Paisley at 3rd with $40 million, followed by Tim McGraw ($35million) and Rascal Flatts coming it at #5 with $34 million. It sounds like a lot of money -- and it is -- but keep in mind, there’s a lot of expenses and a lot of people have to be paid and a lot of big trucks and buses have to keep rolling to the shows that entertain us.
