Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Toby Keith + More Country Stars Make Forbes Celebrity 100 List
Taylor Swift is tops when it comes to being one of the richest country stars/celebrities in the land, so says Forbes Magazine. The annual Forbes Celebrity 100 List of the rich and powerful has come out, and Miss Swift ranks at No. 7.
The next country star to make an appearance on the list is Brad Paisley, who lands at No. 48, while Toby Keith comes in at No. 51 on the list. His I Love This Bar & Grill restaurants, Show Dog-Universal record label and his huge endorsement of Ford products put him ahead of country king Tim McGraw this year, who ranks at No. 61.
There is no surprise as to who topped the list. The Lady Gaga empire brought in an estimated income of a whopping $90 million!
Pop and rock musicians also make their mark on the list. The Top 10 alone includes Justin Bieber at No. 3, U2 at No. 4, Elton John at No. 5 and Bon Jovi No. 8.
The country stars who rank on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 are not slowing down any time soon. Swift is set to embark on her U.S. Speak Now Tour at the end of the month, and Paisley will be bringing us ‘This Is Country Music,’ his brand-new album, on May 23.
