Country's Biggest Money Makers & Tax Payers

Not only do they stimulate the economy with lots of jobs for staff on tour and venues, but these Country Music acts are helping Uncle Sam as TODAY official Tax Day has come.
 
So who earned the most for the year of 2012 according to Billboard Magazine?

Kenny Chesney was country’s highest earner for 2012 coming in at No. 5 with more than $19 million. Kenny’s Brothers of the Sun Tour grossed nearly $100 million and his non-touring revenue, including sales of 2012’s Welcome To The Fishbowl album, were estimated at nearly $3 million.
Revenue streams from Kenny’s merchandise sales and sponsors aren’t included in Billboard’s Top 40 Money Makers figures.

Tim McGraw came in at No. 7, earning just over $18 million. Nearly all of Tim’s earnings came from concerts, including his tour with Kenny Chesney.

Jason Aldean came in at No. 8 on the list, earning $17.5 million, propelled by a hugely successful My Kinda Party Tour and strong music sales.

Lady Antebellum was at No. 12, earning almost $13 million on solid album sales and a successful international tour.

Brad Paisley followed at No. 14 with solid album sales and consistent touring helping him rake in $12.8 million.

Taylor Swift came in at No. 15, sales of more than three million units of her Red album pushing her to a $12.6 million pay day.

Carrie Underwood checked in at No. 16, strong album sales and her Blown Away Tour helping her earn nearly $12 million.
Rounding out the country artists  represented in the Top 20 were:

Eric Church at No. 18 with earnings of $11 million and

Rascal Flatts at No. 19 with a pay day of $10.7 million.

Toby Keith at No. 23,
