Forbes is out with their annual list of the highest paid musicians, and Kenny Chesney came it at number 22 with $44 million earned.

The country superstar owes much of his total to stadium shows, but has diversified into liquor with his Blue Chair Bay rum.

Chesney was only bested by two other country stars: Toby Keith at #10 with $65 million and Taylor Swift at #11 with $64 million.

Other country stars that finished behind Chesney included Jason Aldean at #24 with $37 million and Luke Bryan at #28 with $34 million.

Dr. Dre was the highest paid musician across all genres with $620 million, largely thanks to his sale of Beats headphones to Apple.
