(Radio.com) Garth Brooks is the king of country music. The singer topped the Forbes list of the world's highest paid country acts, stating that he's made $90 million over the past year.

Brooks took a thirteen year break from touring, making his comeback concerts a huge deal to fans, causing tickets to sell out at record speed. The singer sells each ticket for roughly $67, so all fans can come and enjoy his show. In Buffalo, Omaha, and Sacramento he played six shows and is the only top-earning artist to play two shows in one day.

Moreover, the financial magazine calculates that Brooks brought in "the biggest single-year payday Forbes has ever recorded for a country act." See who else made the list here.
