Country Music Acts Make A Lot Of Money Today

There are various studies that indicate that country music is either the most listened to, or the next to most listened to music in the US right now. This must be true given this Statista chart below, where the top 10 country artists made a total of $378 million in 2014 so far, according Forbes. Keep in mind that this doesn't include the summer touring months, which is the most lucrative time of the year for big touring acts.

This is no consolation to acts that aren't in the 1%, as touring is tougher than ever (check out this Wall Street Journal story) as venues of all sorts close. That said, life is sweet if you can make it to the top.
