Billboard published their annual list ranking the highest-paid musicians of the past 12 months with touring being the determining factor.

 

Fleetwood Mac - $11.3 million

Florida Georgia Line - $11.5 million

Juan Gabriel - $11.6 million

Ed Sheeran - $11.6 million

Rush - $12 million

Elton John - $12.4 million

Madonna - $12.7 million

Dave Matthews Band - $14.1 million

Shania Twain - $14.4 million.

Jason Aldean - $18.9 million.

Adam Levine's Maroon 5 raked in $19.2 million last year.

Adele just made the top 10 thanks to her $20.5 million in the year she released the smash album "25" — impressive given that she didn't even tour last year.

U2 is still one of the biggest rock bands around with $21.8 million.

Luke Bryan is one of the top acts around, especially in record sales, nabbing him $23.1 million.

Jerry Garcia may be long dead, but legendary rock group The Grateful Dead cashed in with their Fare Thee Well final reunion tour, with a total $23.8 million.

One Direction, which topped Billboard's list last year, saw their earnings fall significantly following Zayn Malik's abrupt exit, though $24.2 million still doesn't sound so bad.

Billy Joel, the "Piano Man" singer and mainstay at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, earned $31.7 million in 2015.

The Rolling Stones might be over 50 years into their career, but that didn't stop them from taking in a cool $39.6 million.

Country's top dog at the moment, Kenny Chesney, nabbed $39.8 million.

Taylor Swift got the top spot with $73.5 million.
