    12 million in 12 months? Hum, I'll take that. She's right behind Taylor Swift and Brad Paisley. Kenny Chesney was the top Country Artist.

    I'd take it as well but those numbers are undoubtedly gross not net. I'm a little confused how Forbes and Billboard got such different numbers but maybe Forbes was calculating a different time period. Either way she's undoubtedly made more now than she could ever spend in a lifetime (especially if you add in Mike's $4 million contract). She can just concentration the music.

    Yea, different time periods. Forbes was May 2011 to May 2012. BB is from Jan 2012 to Jan. 2013.

    Does this take into account endorsements, and other performances outside her tour? No matter the time period, the discrepancy between Forbes estimate and this one is HUUUUUGEE!!!

    She could still do it when Forbes releases the May 2012-May 2013 list.

    Of course the time period matters. Like Jason said, Forbes was from May 2011 to May 2012. Carrie basically had just Remind Me and Good Girl. Billboard was from January 2012 to January 2013. Carrie had Blown Away (album), Good Girl, Blown Away, a good part of TBC's chart run and the whole first leg of the Blown Away Tour. The time period DOES matter.

    Not too shabby, indeed! Way to go Carrie!

    If anybody deserves to make that much - she certainly does! And how nice to know that it is in good hands and will be spent/invested wisely.

    ^^With her parents teaching her to spend wisely, etc. I am sure that she has learned to invest and give to charity because that is what her father & mother taught her. Plus I am sure that Mike is just as wise with money. I am also sure that we will never know (and I don't want to know) how much they give to charity.

    2013 Money Makers Methodology

    The data used to compile Moneymakers was supplied by Nielsen SoundScan, Nielsen BDS, YouTube and Billboard Boxscore. Artists are ranked by U.S. earnings, and Billboard calculated a variety of income streams, including touring, recorded-music sales, publishing royalties and revenue from an array of digital music and video services for downloads, as well as on-demand and noninteractive streaming. Due to a lack of sufficient data, our figures don't include revenue from sponsorships, merchandise sales or synchronization data.

    For album and track sales, we assumed a royalty rate of 20% of retail, minus producers' fees. We treated all streaming revenue as derived from a licensing deal and thus split that revenue in half to calculate the artist's take. We also applied corresponding statutory mechanical rates for album and track sales and the Copyright Royalty Board-approved formulas or rates used for the various streaming channels, and further estimated the share of songs written by the artists. For all artist revenue, we subtracted a manager's fee of 10%. For box office, we credited each artist with 34% of gross receipts, typically what's left after the promoter's fee, the artist manager's cut and other costs are subtracted.

    The crazy thing is, this was actually not Madonna's highest-grossing tour, she earned even more money world-wide, she's sold "MDNA" with the tour so the cost of the tour is higher, she receives very little airplay, and the things that were not included on this (e.g. scent) would've put her at a way higher amount of money earned.

    Thanks for that info. I was curious what the artist take typically is for tour revenue. 34% sounds like a reasonable estimate. I was guessing that expenses were at least 50%. I'm sure there are some tours with higher expenses than others. Carrie probably has fairly high expenses but probably not much higher than average.

    All of Carrie's private parties and concerts aren't included in this either....and I read on Twitter, for instance, that The Voice isn't included in Blakes.

    Judging from the methodology somebody else posted that is probably true. All of these publications are estimating. Unless they've seen their tax returns they don't know what any artist actually makes. I give Billboard credit for publishing how they calculated the numbers. I've often wondered how the bands are paid. Do they get a percentage or a flat fee per gig?
