Billboard released their annual study of the Top 40 Money Makers in the Music Business, and Country Music flexed it’s muscles in the latest edition.  Taylor Swift was #1 on the chart making a whopping pile of dough that comes just shy of $40 million over the past 12 months.  Kenny Chesney comes in at #2 on the list, making nearly $33 million.  The rest of the top 5 is rounded out by #3 Justin Timberlake, #4 Bon Jovi, and #5 The Rolling Stones.

Also cracking the Top 15 from the Country Music genre are Luke Bryan, who comes in at #8 with over $22 million, Jason Aldean at #14, and George Strait at #15.  So one third of the top 15 come from the country genre…it’s no wonder it’s experiencing quite possibly it’s highest level of popularity ever!
