country

Country singers may or may not be your thing, but there’s one thing you cannot deny; country stars and their music are hotter than ever. They’re so hot right now that you have rappers creating chart-topping duets with country duos (we’re looking at you Nelly and Florida Georgia Line) and making women scream in excitement during concerts (Luke Bryan, anyone?) and you even have an entire television show about the life of a country superstar (Nashville, for those who live under a rock). Country music is big. And these 25 country singers are some of the richest according to their bank accounts.
