Every year, Forbes magazine calculates the highest paid artists in every genre. This year, Taylor placed 2nd in the Country Artist category by earning $64 million through ticket sales for her worldwide tour and her endorsements with Keds, Diet Coke, and Covergirl. Congratulations Taylor!
No. 2: Taylor Swift, $64 million
Still only 24 years old, Swift fell just short of the top spot on this year’s Country Cash Kings list, but her $64 million haul is her best year yet. She earns the bulk of her bucks from touring, also cashing in on endorsements for Diet Coke, Keds and CoverGirl. Earlier this year the crossover star was honored at the CMAs with the Pinnacle Award, which has only been given to one other artist: Garth Brooks.
