So is your favorite on the list? Billboard magazine is releasing its list of the biggest music money makers in 2012. Some are expected, others are a surprise (especially the amount of money #1 pulls in). I think I’m goin’ country, ya’ll. Take a look…
#10 – ADELE, $13,081,909
Forget “Rolling In The Deep,” this British beauty is rolling in the dough. And get this, she didn’t even get to complete her tour because of her throat issues and she still pulled in mega bucks! Love me some, Adele.
#9 – JASON ALDEAN, $13,409,011
Ok, so can anyone tell me who Jason Aldean is? Yeah, I didn’t know either. Some country dude, but apparently someone knows him b/c he earned almost as much as Adele and everyone knows her.
#8 – CELINE DION, $14,261,515
Celine’s Vegas show is helping bring in the bug bucks… Her 2007 album sold more than 300,000 copies in 2011, plus nearly a million downloads of her music.
#7 – BON JOVI, $15,835,856
Bon Jovi is iconic. No wonder they are in the Top 10. They have been merchandising like crazy with videos, downloads and more, all stemming from last year’s tour, “The Circle.”
