Taylor Swift Is Loaded
At 21 years old, according to Billboard, top country music earners Toby Keith, Reba, Sugarland and even the king, George Strait, didn’t make as much money as Taylor Swift did in 2010.
From a list put together by Billboard magazine, of the top income-earners from last year, she didn’t make as much money as performers on the pop side of music like Lady Gaga, The Dave Matthews Band or Justin Bieber. Taylor’s numbers are nothing to cry poverty over. She made $20,730,431.
Some of the other top earners in country are Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and Brad Paisley. Sugarland ended up as number 39 on the list, with more than $4 million. Quite a chunk of change in anyone’s book.
