Top Earning Woman In Music Is…

Forbes magazine recently released the top earning women in music list. With no surprise at all Katy Perry and Taylor Swift top that list. Katy Perry actually topped the list with $135 million earned, Taylor Swift came in a not so close second with $80 million.

The real surprise is Fleetwood Mac coming in third with $59.5 million earned. In fact, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie, the 2 women in the band, made that almost entirely from shows. Fleetwood Mac actually beat out Lady Gaga who earned $59 million and Beyonce who earned $54.5 million.  Which is pretty impressive, especially in this market.

Only 1 other music veteran to make the top ten list was Mariah Carey with $27 million. Celine Dion and Madonna came up just short of making the list.
