Toby Keith Tops List Of Highest Paid Country Stars
Toby Keith certainly has no shortage of cash. He tops Forbes‘ recently released “Country Music’s Highest-Paid Stars” list, which used estimated earnings between May 2010 and May 2011. So, how much do you have to earn to make the list?
In Toby’s case, it’s $50 million. And Forbes didn’t just use money made from touring when compiling this list, though Toby did OK in that category earning upwards of $500k per show. His numbers also reflect I Love This Bar & Grill earnings (estimated at $8 million), his Ford sponsorship and the Wild Shot Mezcal launch. Rounding out the top 5 are Taylor Swift ($45 million), Brad Paisley ($40 million), Tim McGraw ($35 million) and Rascal Flatts ($34 million). Last year’s top earner, Kenny Chesney, made the top ten.
