At the top of the list is country powerhouse Garth Brooks, whose busy touring schedule raked in $60 million in the past year, PEOPLE reports.

The second spot went to Kenny Chesney with $42.5 million and Luke Bryan at a close third, with $42 million.

Not that Dolly Parton ever needs to prove her staying power in the industry, but there's no denying it with her $37 million this year, thanks to the 71-year-old crooner's 63 shows, publishing paychecks and Dollywood theme park.

Toby Keith and Florida Georgia Line round out the top five, tying at $34.5 million.

The rest of the list is part of the boys' club as well — Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Eric Church and Zac Brown Band finish off the list.

Our favorite female power singers, like Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, just missed the cut this year. But with their talent and fame, coupled with the rising star power of Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini, as well as albums and tours from Shania Twain and Faith Hill, it's likely the gals will be more represented next year.
