The richest country music stars

Stacker Logo By Jason Kessler of Stacker | Slide 1 of 58: With the popularity of country music today, it’s easy to see why the stars of the genre have become multi-millionaires. Big-name country artists like Garth Brooks and Shania Twain have sold close to 200 million albums between the two of them, and the industry recently made up 10% of total sales across all genres. To put together the list of richest country music stars, Stacker used data from Celebrity Net Worth, which aggregates publicly available information like real estate holdings, announced salaries, royalties, record sales, and endorsements. The final net worth total is created using a secret formula that eliminates expenses like manager and agent fees, estimated taxes paid, and other lifestyle expenses, boiling it down to a more accurate figure of a star’s total assets. Want to see which crooners made it big? Read through to see which "American Idol" star already crossed the $85 million mark, and which country legend has half a billion dollars.
