Taylor Swift – Top Earner for 2011

This will most likely be the only time you will see a photo of Taylor Swift on this blog, so I thought I would find one that had her in a mature pose.

This list of 2011’s top earners in music is not all that surprising, given the amount of albums sold and concert revenue has been generated.

  1. Taylor Swift – $35,719,902
  2. U2 – $32,116,315
  3. Kenny Chesney – $29,837,103
  4. Lady Gaga – $25,353,039
  5. Lil Wayne – $23,178,722
  6. Sade – $16,382,809
  7. Bon Jovi – $15,835,856
  8. Celine Dion – $14,261,515
  9. Jason Aldean – $13,409,011
  10. Adele – $13,081,909

Celine Dion’s millions is all her shows at Caesar’s in Vegas. Sade hasn’t had an album in years, but went on tour. Adele is all album sales with some live shows. The most surprising on this list is Kenny Chesney. I must be out of the loop on what’s he’s been up to for the last 5 years.
