Toby Keith Is Country Music's Wealthiest Singer
Oprah Winfrey topped this year's Celebrity 100. The top ten also included Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Madonna and Taylor Swift. Keith landed at No. 43.
When it comes to money, though, Keith ranks much higher. Forbes lists his total earnings upwards of an astounding $500 million, and his annual income for the past 12 months at $65 million.
So while he may be close to the halfway point on the Celebrity 100 (below Jay-Z, Katy Perry, Dr. Phil and Adam Sandler), in terms of annual income alone he's at No. 19.
And among country artists, he's on top. Swift, by contrast, pulls in 'only' $55 million a year; Kenny Chesney $53 million; and Carrie Underwood $31 million. More details here.
