9. Keith Urban – $30 million

Australian country star Keith Urban is no doubt one of the biggest artists in Hollywood. Not only is he constantly touring around the globe, he’s also got his own guitar line and is widely known as one of the highest paid musicians in country music as he rakes in some of the biggest checks for his performances. Urban has been producing hits since 1999 and released 10 studio albums to date. This third album Be Here produced three No. 1 singles and ranks as his highest-selling album, earning 4x Platinum certification.

8. Blake Shelton – $31.5 million

Most artists on this list make a good chunk of their salary out on the road on tour, but Blake Shelton has his hands in a few other cookie jars that make him big bucks. One of his biggest earnings comes from being a regular coach on NBC’s widely popular singing show The Voice ever since it’s inception. Throughout his career he has charted 33 singles, 24 of which were No. 1 hits. He’s recognized as one of the most successful country artists today and as of 2014 he has sold 10 million records worldwide — that’s probably why he’s worth an estimated $31.5 million!
