Who Are Country Music’s Wealthiest Stars?
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.
