Country music Top artists

Toby Keith tops Forbes magazine’s list of country music’s top-paid artists for 2014 with estimated earnings of $65 million.

Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan also landed in the Top 5 of Forbes‘ “Country Cash Kings” list, but Keith eclipsed them all because of his numerous endeavors which include a restaurant chain, his own Wild Shot mescal, a multimillion-dollar endorsement deal with Ford and the acts he signs to his Show Dog record label.

“I can put them on that 30-city tour, ” Keith said of the business advantages. “I don’t have to look for a place to play. It’s cost-effective as crap. 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.”

It marks the second consecutive year Keith has topped the list. His total earnings over the past year are estimated at $335 million.

Notably, Florida Georgia Line lands at No. 10 on the list with earnings of $24 million over the past year. It’s a significant achievement for an act that was virtually unknown prior to the release of their Here’s to the Good Times album in December 2012.

Here’s a list of Forbes Top 10 of country musicians:

1. Toby Keith ($65 million)
2. Taylor Swift ($64 million)
3. Kenny Chesney ($44 million)
4. Jason Aldean ($37 million)
5. Luke Bryan ($34 million)
6. Zac Brown Band ($29 million)
7. Keith Urban ($28 million)
8. Rascal Flatts ($27 million)
