Kenny Chesney Is One Of The Highest Paid Musicians Of The Year

Country artists have no problem bringing in the money, and a couple rank high on the list of the highest-paid musicians of the past year.

While Taylor Swift ranks as the overall top earner of 2015, Kenny Chesney comes in second place, with Luke Bryan coming in the seventh position.

Swift brought in $73.5 million in revenue last year thanks to her ever successful 1989 World Tour. Chesney earned $39.8 million last year after taking a hiatus from the road in 2014.

Bryan is the only other country artist who breaks the Top 10 earners, according to Billboard. He is ranked in seventh place for his $23.1 million

Of 40 musicians calculated by Billboard, eight are country artists.

Shania Twain, Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line rank Top 20, and Brad Paisley, Eric Church and Toby Keith fall in the Top 30 as highest earners.
