As Brantley Gilbert sang in his hit song, “Country Must Be Country Wide!” It’s no secret that country music entertainers are racking up big bucks with album sales and selling out stadiums while on tour. It’s quite a lucrative business and some are now the highest paid  in the music industry. Forbes magazine has just released its annual list of the “25 highest paid musicians” and 3 of our favorite artists are on the list! As an international superstar, I am guessing that everyone already knows that Taylor Swift made the list, so who do you think the other two artists are? Find out here…

Quite frankly, I am surprised that Taylor Swift was not even close to #1 on the “25 Highest Paid Musicians” list!

Big Machine‘s Taylor Swift placed #8 on Forbes list, tied with Paul McCartney’s $57 million.
