Think Taylor Swift is the richest country music star out there? Think again!

According to Forbes, there's one country twanger who banks more than the Swizzle. Can you guess who?

It might not be who you would assume it would be. George Strait, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, or Reba? Nope. It's actually Toby Keith.

Yep, the all-American kick a** dad-like singer raked in more than T-Swift, P.Diddy and Jay Z this past year. Toby earned a staggering $65 million. How?

Of course he sings and releases hit after hit. Toby also has earned a lot of money off his I Love This Bar and Grill restaurants, an endorsement deal with Ford, his Wild Shot line of mescal and profits from his Show Dog label. Forbes reports that he made $335 million over the last six years.

Tay made an estimated $64 million dollars this past year, courtesy of her latest album Red and its tour. She also made mad cash with her Keds, CoverGirl and Diet Coke endorsement deals.

Kenny took over the third spot on the country-music-money-making list banking $44 million. Jason Aldean raked $37 million, and Luke Bryan made $34 million.
