COUNTRY MUSIC BACK ON TOP

After a slump period, country music is once again a force to be reckoned with, according to the Los Angeles Times. Combining record and concert ticket sales, the paper recently ranked 2004's Top 10 U.S. acts. Kenny Chesney took the No. 2 spot just behind R&B singer Usher, with $96.8 million earned. Toby Keith's $95.2 million earned him the No. 3 spot; Tim McGraw held down the No. 7 position with $81.7 million, and Shania Twain - who didn't even release her Greatest Hits album until November 2004 - earned $70.7 million at No. 10.
