Toby Keith, Taylor Swift Top Forbes’ List of Highest-Paid Country Artists - Billboard

Toby Keith tops Forbes’ annual list of country music’s highest paid artists for the second year in a row, pulling in an estimated $65 million.
The Oklahoma native earns the No. 1 spot on Forbes’ 2014 Country Cash Kings tally thanks to his I Love This Bar And Grill restaurant chain, a lucrative endorsement deal with Ford, his own Wild Shot tequila brand, and revenue from his Show Dog label.

“I can put them on that 30-city tour. I don’t have to look for a place to play. It’s cost-effective as crap,” Keith tells Forbes. “They’re in Toby’s house. They’re drinking Toby’s liquor. That’s Toby’s act. And then we’re moving to the next town.”
Keith has tallied $335 million over the past six, according to Forbes.
Coming in second on the list is 24-year-old Taylor Swift, who earned $64 million from touring and endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Keds and CoverGirl.
Kenny Chesney ranks third with $44 million, and rounding out the top five on the Country Cash Kings list are Jason Aldean ($37 million) and Luke Bryan ($34 million).

  1. Look at the millions of cheap and nasty replica watches there are out there in the market place, they are not worth the time and effort of putting them on your wrist. This is just a couple of aspects of why i despise cheap rubbish. A true rolex replica sale lover wants something service able and repairable, that can last his whole remaining replica watches uk on this planet. When paired with the subtle color pallet, the rolex replica watches will appeal to enthusiasts such as myself who would love that rolex replica sale watchesmalist look without forking over an exorbitant amount of cash for a luxury priced brand. Heck, the names attached to the project got our attention and got us thinking a lot, so it has at least succeeded at the initial hurdle where so many new replica watches sale struggle just to be noticed.
