The Richest Country Singers Might Surprise You

Prior to the pandemic, Luke Bryan was one of the highest earning celebrities, ranking 62nd on Forbes’ 2020 Celebrity 100 with earnings of $45.5 million. According to the concerts, his average gross income per city was over $1 million, and his salary as an “American Idol” judge is said to be $12 million per season. According to Celebrity Net Worth, her current net worth is $160 million.

In February 2022, with his “Luke Bryan: Vegas” residency (per Country Living), Bryan became Resorts World Theater’s third resident after fellow country star Carrie Underwood and “American Idol” co-judge Katy Perry. After his “Raised up Right Tour” ends, he’ll be back in Vegas for more shows through April 2023 (according to Bryan’s website).

With his busy schedule — which also includes owning Luke’s 32 Bridge Food + Drink in Nashville — PopCulture asked Bryan if there was another area he’d like to conquer. “People ask me, ‘Do you want to act?’ … I mean, if the right little movie role were to come up, maybe, probably not,” the singer said, adding that “[i]It’s really important for me to focus on the music and focus on it first.”

And perhaps Bryant’s biggest flex is letting his family spend their money without his interference. “Me and my business manager, we have a deal,” he said in an interview for CMT Hot 20 Countdown. “He was never allowed to tell me what my family members cost me every year.”
