Toby Keith is continuing his reign as one of the highest-paid musicians in the world. The Oklahoma native came in at No. 10 on Forbes’ 2014 list of the highest-paid musicians, the only country artist to land in the Top 10.

Keith’s wealth, estimated at $65 million for the year, is due to not only his impressive album sales and tour schedule, but also his business empire, which includes his I Love This Bar & Grill restaurant chain; part ownership of his record label, Show Dog-Universal, along with a stake in Big Machine; and his own line of mezcal.

The ‘Drunk American’ singer’s earnings remained the same compared to¬†last year, but his ranking on the list dropped from No. 4 to No. 10 thanks to other impressive earners in 2014. Rapper Dr. Dre topped the list with with a whopping figure of $620 million, followed by Beyonce ($115 million), the Eagles ($100 million), Bon Jovi ($82 million) and Bruce Springsteen ($81 million).

But Keith wasn’t the only country artist on the list. Taylor Swift landed at No. 11, with a figure of just $1 million less than Keith ($64 million). Kenny Chesney came in at No. 22 ($44 million), while Jason Aldean came in at No. 24 ($37 million), and his good friend Luke Bryan nabbed the 28th slot ($34 million).
