I’m just going to get this out of the way. Thanks in part to the sale of Beats to Apple, Rapper/Producer Dr. Dre made 620 Million dollars over the part year.
Now let’s get on to the rest….Forbes has released it’s list of the highest paid musicians of 2014! You can see the full list here.
After finishing fourth overall last year(see the 2013 list here), Toby Keith is Country Music’s top earner once again. His 65 Million earned barely edged out Taylor Swift for tenth place on this year’s overall list. How does he do it? It’s not just Toby’s music, as he described to Forbes in yet another article about his wealth, his portfolio also includes a Mescal line, a chain of restaurants, his own record label and many endorsements.
“The beauty is where it synergizes with my label, I don’t have to look for a place [for my acts] to play … they’re in Toby’s house. They’re drinking Toby’s liquor. That’s Toby’s act. And then we’re moving to the next town.”
So it’s as easy as that. As we await the release of his 17th studio album 35 MPH Town it’s fair to say Toby is likely off to a good start of 2015 as well! While no release date for the album has been given, the lead single is out and the music video is posted below!
