Forbes is out with their annual list of the highest paid musicians and Kenny Chesney comes in at a solid #21 with $42 million earned.

The legendary country crooner seemed to be predicting his own future with his fifteenth studio album, The Big Revival, released this past September. As usual, he cashed in by selling out football stadiums; he also pads his coffers with his own Blue Chair Bay Rum.

Chesney was at #22 last year with $44 million.

Number one on this year’s list? Katy Perry with an astonishing $135 million, followed by One Direction at $130 million and Garth Brooks at $90 million.

Kenny Ready to Break Diet When Tour Ends

Kenny Chesney sticks to a very strict diet while on tour, but when The Big Revival Tour ends, he’ll let loose a little.

He says, “If I’m off the road, and it’s in the fall and I’m watching football, I’m like everybody else. I’ll eat a bag of Doritos sitting watching football all day on Sunday, or whatever it is. I take that time off the road to drink a few beers and just eat.”

As a native of East Tennessee, Kenny grew up eating classic Southern fried chicken and big casseroles.

He adds, “Everything we did revolved around food. So, that’s not left me. It’s part of my insanity, ’cause I still want to do that, but I can’t [when I’m touring].”

So, what does Kenny like to chow down on in the fall? He admits he’s got a weakness for cheese, pasta and chocolate. Kenny likes to wash all that down with a glass of red wine.

Chesney’s Tour Bus Rolls Past 1 Million Miles

Kenny Chesney’s tour bus that he’s had since the early days just passed one million miles on the odometer.

Unlike many artists, Chesney owns his own tour bus, so the home-away-from-home has seen its fair share of adventures. It even has its own song, “If This Bus Could Talk,” which was the star’s 13th No. 1 single. The old-school bus has been with Chesney from the beginning.

“It was a used Silver Eagle when I bought it, and the bank had no business lending me the money, ‘cause all I owned was a little pickup and my guitar. But I knew if I owned my bus, we could keep doing this, keep bringing the music to the people!” Chesney recalls.

Moby is like a member of the family now, there through thick and thin, connecting the country icon to where he’s from and where he’s going — both literally and figuratively.

“I always thought it was important, no matter what happened, to keep Moby on the road.” he explains. “He’s seen it all, and it reminds me and the guys who’ve been here from the beginning where we came from. Right now some of the No Shoes Radio folks and the tech people are riding it, but we park it right up front … and everybody who walks by just smiles.”

Aldean and Kenny Hang Out at B-Dubs

Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean recently hung together at a Nashville area Buffalo Wild Wings.

Jason recently posted a photo on Instagram of himself partying with Kenny. It turns out Jason just sat down at the restaurant with his girlfriend, Brittany Kerr, when he got a call from Kenny.

Jason says, “He goes, ‘Well, I’m at somewhere. We’ve been drinking margaritas all day.’ I was like, ‘Well, come over here and meet us. We just sat down. We’ll have a beer. Whatever.'”

Jason’s invitation turned to hours of drinking beer, tequila and rum once Kenny showed up.

“All I do know is, I think we ended up calling a car to take us home,” Jason says. He adds, “Kenny, he’s a funny dude, man.”

Says Jason, “He’s a good guy to kind to have there to kinda talk to about stuff and bounce ideas off of, and been there-done that kind of thing. And still, as long as he has been in the business, he still loves what he does.”

Jason just headlined stadiums in Cleveland and Cincinnati this weekend, and he expects Kenny to get back out on the concert trail in a big way in 2015, too.

Jason says with a laugh, “I know he’s taking some time off right now, and he’s, like, already over it. He’s ready to get on the road.”

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)

Kenny’s Favorite Christmas Song

As we near Christmas, CMT dishes on Kenny Chesney and his favorite holiday song:

It makes total sense that the East Tennessee native loves the song [Christmas in Dixie] so much. It’s the perfect illustration of the environment that molded and shaped him, set against the backdrop of the most festive and nostalgic time of year.

“Growing up in the South, I can just remember hearing that a lot,” Chesney said. “I mean every Christmas, you heard Alabama. You heard Randy Owen singing ‘Christmas in Dixie.’ It’s just one of those songs that my hometown radio station played every year. I always remember loving that song.”

Once he got into the music business, Chesney became friends with Owen and his Alabama bandmates. In fact, Owen provided guest vocals when Chesney recorded a version of “Christmas in Dixie” for his 2003 album, All I Want for Christmas Is a Real Good Tan.

“They just mean so much to me,” Chesney said. “And to have Randy come in and lend his voice to one of my records was just an awesome feeling — something I will be able to have forever. It’s pretty cool.”
