posted by Nathan -

They may sing about the simple joys of life, but top country singers are raking in some serious cash.

On Tuesday, Forbes released the 2017 list of the World’s Highest-Paid Country Music Stars, with the top 10 crooners earning a total of $366 million this year.

Topping the list is Garth Brooks, whose busy touring schedule brought in $60 million in the past year.

Kenny Chesney landed the No. 2 spot with $42.5 million, and Luke Bryan follows closely with $42 million, both of whom earned their paychecks with touring and the help of endorsement deals.

Dolly Parton makes an appearance at fourth on the list. The 71-year-old singer earned in the mid-six figures range at her 63 shows over the past year, earning her a respectable $37 million. Publishing paychecks and her Dollywood theme park also add to her income.
