So for the past three years Garth Brooks has ruled the Forbes’ highest paid country stars list, mostly due to his three year world tour that he’s been doing. However LUKE BRYAN is at the top of the list, and it’s not due to American Idol! Luke Bryan’s tour has raked him seven figures per night! In total his income the last three years was $52 million, and that is including his American Idol salary. I’m also so excited that Dolly Parton made the top 10, from her touring and her Dollywood theme park!

The top 10 are as follows:

  1. Luke Bryan
  2. Garth Brooks
  3. Kenny Chesney
  4. Zac Brown Band
  5. Blake Shelton
  6. Florida Georgia Line
  7. Jason Aldean
  8. Toby Keith
  9. Brad Paisley
  10. Dolly Parton
