Country Leads Highest Payroll On Forbes 100

Surprisingly when scanning the list of Forbes 100 List of World’s Highest Paid Celebrities, Country artists came up most common on the list, ahead of rappers and pop artists. 

You can view the whole list here, but the biggest surprise was Garth Brooks making number 6, surpassing Taylor Swift by 2 spots. 

Other notable mentions include Toby Keith (#32), Jason Aldean (#47), Luke Bryan (#48), Kenny Chesney (#49), Tim McGraw (#58), Florida Georgia Line (#61), and Zac Brown Band (#78). 

Country Power Couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton round out the end of the list, each making number 95 in a tie. 

I guess that means Country knows how to get paid! 

Who are you surprised made the list? Who didn't?
