When I found out who the world's highest paid musician was. I was floored. Very surprised. And not only is the country star the highest paid, according to Forbes Magazine, it's the second year in a row that they accomplished this feat. Toby Keith claims the No.1 spot on Forbes' list of the World's Highest Paid Country Musician of 2014. Forbes estimates the 53-year-old singer made a whopping $65 million this year, thanks to his I Love This Bar And Grill restaurants, a multimillion-dollar endorsement deal with Ford, his own Wild Shot mescal, and the acts he signs to his Show Dog label.  How  does he do it? "Other musicians on my label and brand synergy: I can put them on that 30-city tour. I don't have to look for a place to play. It's cost-effective as crap,” he said. “They're in Toby's house. They're drinking Toby's liquor. That's Toby's act. And then we're moving to the next town.” Toby even beat out Taylor Swift. which is no easy feat. http://nr.news-republic.com/Web/ArticleWeb.aspx?regionid=1&articleid=26688684&m=d
