Country music stars have captured the top two spots on Billboard’s annual all-genre Top 40 Money Makers  list.
And the names won’t surprise you—Taylor Swift tops it with $39.7 million (plus another $10 million or so in endorsements) hauled in last year, and Kenny Chesney finished second with $32.9 million.
For Taylor, selling nearly 10 million downloads contributed greatly to her awesome year at the cash register.
For Kenny, his latest album, Life on a Rock, hit No. 1 and his last tour hit the 1-million-tickets-sold mark, for the 10th time in a row.
Taylor and Kenny beat out acts like Justin Timberlake, Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones for the top spots.
