Taylor Swift tops money makers list

Update : 12 Mar 2014, 06:34 PM

Singer songwriter Taylor Swift has been named America’s highest-earning musician over the last year. She surpassed the likes of Beyoncé, Bon Jovi and even the Rolling Stones to earn nearly $40m from US tour dates, music sales, streaming and publishing royalties, according to Billboard’s annual Money Makers report.

The seven-time Grammy Award-winner tops the overall Billboard list despite ranking only sixth in digital music sales and eighth in physical album sales. What’s more, over the course of Swift’s 66 sold-out concerts last year, each ticket-buyer apparently spent an average of $17 (£10) on the singer’s tour. Swift was previously crowned in the Billboard rich list in 2012.
