Taylor Swift, Hunter Hayes Make Forbes’ 30 Under 30 List
Swift’s appearance comes as no surprise. In addition to the success of her album, ‘Red,’ which has sold almost four million units, the 24-year-old also made an impressive $55 million last year, thanks not only to record sales, but endorsements from Sony, Coke and Cover Girl. In addition, her global Red Tour was one of the highest-grossing tours of 2013.
Hayes is quickly becoming one of the most-watched stars in music, thanks in part to his coveted opening slot on Carrie Underwood‘s Blown Away Tour He was also nominated for three Grammy awards last year, and is in the running for one again this year, for Best Country Solo Performance for his platinum-selling hit, ‘I Want Crazy.’
