Taylor Swift has broken yet another record.

The singer’s global Red Tour, which wrapped up last month in Asia, grossed more than $150 million, beating the record by a country artist previously held by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill‘s Soul2Soul tour, which brought in $141 million in 2006 and 2007.

Swift’s Red Tour kicked off in March 2013 in Nebraska, and crossed North America for six months before heading to Australia and New Zealand at the end of last year. After a short break, the songstress began the new year with shows in London and Berlin, then kicked off her Asian trek on May 30.

The Pennsylvania native played in 15 stadiums during the tour, including the Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., which boasted the best box office results of her tour. According to Billboard magazine, Swift sold  1,702,933 tickets at 86 performances in 12 countries.

Swift is currently spending some time off the road, working on a new album.

“I’ve already been working very hard on it and it’s already my favorite thing that I’ve ever created,” she reveals. “So the idea that after Asia, I get to go back and finish everything and get everything completely done and wrapped up for a new project, it’s very exciting. It’s exciting to be here and to know that this is the end of a musical era in my life that I’m proud of. It’s also very exciting to move on to the next one.”
