    The highest paid star in country music is...

    ...not Taylor Swift!

    Shocker, right?

    It's singer Toby Keith who has topped the annual Forbes list of highest-paid country singers for the second year in a row.

    Keith collected $65 million in revenue since June 2013.

    His six-year tally? Oh, just $335 million. Time to raise that red solo cup again, Mr. Keith! You got bank.

    Swift cruised into the No. 2 slot with $64 million in earnings, so it's a close, neck-and-neck race for these two.

    Who is your favorite country star?
