Country Music’s Richest Man: Toby Keith
Would you believe that over the course of his melodic career Toby Keith has hauled in around 1/2 billion bucks? It’s true, according to Forbes magazine.
He’s now known as country music’s richest man. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he’s written a No. 1 country hit every year for the past two decades.
Making country music is only part of the entertainers resume. He also has a 10 percent stake in Big Machine Records and sells out stadiums across the country whenever he tours.
Toby owns his own restaurant chain (“I Love This Bar”), a long list of endorsements, and a deep love for Ford trucks.
Keith earned $65 million in the last 12 months, more than any other country artist.
Keith’s new album is due out this fall, and its first single, “Drinks After Work,” is already scoring radio playtime and drawing rave reviews for its originality.
