Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan and Garth Brooks are included on Forbes' top 100 world's highest-paid celebs for 2018

Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan and Garth Brooks are included on Forbes’ top 100 world's highest-paid celebs for 2018. The list includes athletes, actors, musicians and other entertainment figures—with boxer Floyd Mayweather on top, generating $285 mil.

The highest country name on the list would be Taylor Swift, who landed at No. 21 and is not technically a primarily country genre artist at this point. She racked up $80 mil. She's joined by Luke Bryan at No. 45 (who pulled in $52 mil.), Garth Brooks at No. 59 ($45.5 mil.), and Kenny Chesney at No.87 ($37 mil.).

Forbes ranks its Celebrity 100 using their pretax earnings from June 1, 2017 through June 1, 2018, before deducting fees for managers, lawyers and agents. Estimates are based on numbers from Nielsen, Pollstar, IMDB, SoundScan, NPD BookScan and ComScore, as well as interviews with industry experts and many of the stars themselves.
