Country Music's Highest Paid Celebs

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.
