The country superstar scored the highest-grossing tour last week, according to Billboard, bringing in more than $6.5 million in revenue. His impressive earnings top No. 2 ranked Lady Gaga by almost $1 million. The Allman Brothers Band came in third, with more than $3.5 million. Neil Young places a distant fourth, with just over $680,000, and Widespread Panic came in fifth, earning just slightly less than Neil.

Kenny’s soaring income for last week is due in part to performing the second of his nine stadium shows schedule. ‘The Boys of Fall’ singer performed at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas on April 16, raking in more than $4 million for the show. The Zac Brown Band, Billy Currington and Uncle Kracker all joined him for the night, entertaining the crowd of 46,551 fans.
