The richest country music stars

It’s easy to see why today's country music stars have become multimillionaires. Big-name country artists like Garth Brooks and Shania Twain have sold close to 200 million albums between the two of them, and the industry represents about 10% of total sales across all genres, according to CMT.

The upcoming CMT Music Awards in Nashville will be hosted by Little Big Town on June 5. Fan-favorite and 18-time CMTMA winner Carrie Underwood will once again perform at this year's event, as well as try to add two more awards to her collection, including video of the year. What better time than to see which stars are bringing home not only music accolades, but also the big bucks? 

Stacker used data from Celebrity Net Worthwhich aggregates publicly available information like real estate holdings, announced salaries, royalties, record sales, and endorsements—to put together this list of richest country music stars. The final net worth is created using a formula that eliminates expenses like manager and agent fees, estimated taxes paid, and other lifestyle expenses, boiling it down to a more accurate figure of a star’s total assets.

Read through to see which "American Idol" star has already crossed the $85 million mark, and which country legend is worth half a billiondollars.
