    When Carrie performs at one of those fairs, I think she also gets like 300K+ for a night. Not a bad gig!

    Those numbers just show that just getting on AI and going deep into the season, you can make yourself a VERY nice living at doing what you love to do.

    Even if say someone like Danny takes home half of what his fee his and plays 100 gigs a year that is $ 1.5 mil, not a bad chunk of change.

    All the naysayers who think that the contestants are only a "success" unless they are selling millions of albums or if they win tons of awards are proven wrong once again.

    Eww. I would not pay him a million bucks to come and steal the microphone at my own party and then flip everyone off.

    As an opening act Danny will get no where near that. I'm guessing maybe 20k

    And those fees are apparently out of date too, so it's possible Carrie could be even more expensive now.

    Well if he makes 500k a year it is still a hell of a lot better than working 9 to 5.

    aren't band members and tour crew also paid from this sum? That would still leave a lot of money, but I'm sure Carrie pays her crew well.

    Carrie has to pay her band & her management, but I would think her band is paid on an annual salary sort of thing. I could be wrong, but I would think they would sign some sort of contract.
