Garth Brooks Tops Forbes' Highest Paid Country Music Acts List

(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.
