Billboard is out with their annual list of the top paid musicians and Kenny Chesney came in second with $32,956,240.70, behind Taylor Swift at $39,699,575.60.

Second only to Garth Brooks among country acts with the most No. 1s on the Billboard 200, 45-year-old Chesney remains one of the most consistent earners in the music industry. Solidly strong on the content side — digital and physical — Chesney’s 2013 release, “Life on a Rock,” was the artist’s seventh chart-topper, while on the touring front he’s country’s stadium king, having topped 1 million in attendance for 10 consecutive tours, including this year’s $90 million No Shoes Nation trek. Chesney will take a touring breather in 2014 but doesn’t plan on slowing down when it comes to business interests beyond music.

Here’s the full top 10:

  1. Taylor Swift ($39.7 million)
  2. Kenny Chesney ($33 million)
  3. Justin Timberlake ($31.5 million)
  4. Bon Jovi ($29.4 million)
  5. The Rolling Stones ($26.2 million)
  6. Beyoncé ($24.4 million)
  7. Maroon 5 ($22.3 million)
  8. Luke Bryan ($22.1 million)
  9. P!nk ($20.1 million)
  10. Fleetwood Mac ($19.1 million)
