Billboard has released their list of the highest paid musicians of 2015 and Kenny Chesney comes in at #2 with $39.8 million.

Of 40 musicians calculated by Billboard, eight are country artists — nine if you include Taylor Swift. While Swift ranks No. 1 as the overall top earner of 2015, Kenny Chesney comes in second place, with Luke Bryan rounding out the Top 10 country earners in the seventh position.

Meanwhile, Shania Twain, Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line rank Top 20, and Brad Paisley and Toby Keith fall in the Top 30 as highest earners. A complete breakdown is below.

Swift brought in $73.5 million in revenue last year thanks to her ever successful 1989 World Tour. Chesney earned $39.8 million last year after taking a hiatus from the road in 2014. The majority of his income, $38.1 million, came from playing for his adoring No Shoes Nation of fans.
