Forbes came out with its list of the top paid celebrities of 2019 and there are some surprising names on this list. I’ll tell you about them coming up, but first, it’s no surprise – Taylor Swift is on top bringing in $185-million in the last 12-months. Luke Bryan came in at number-78 earning just under $43-million and Zac Brown just made the list at number-95 raking in $38 million.
Now for the interesting stuff. Number-8 on the list is … The Eagles (the band). They made $100 million on their An Evening With the Eagles Tour. It was the group’s first extended tour since the death of Glenn Frey and they grossed more than $3.5 million at each tour stop. The current lineup features Frey’s son, Deacon, along with Vince Gill.
Another interesting artist on the list ranks at number 57 – Jimmy Buffett. “Margaritaville” spawned an empire that now includes a chain of restaurants all over the world, as well as clothing, footwear and home decor, tequila and margarita mix. In all, he earned $50 million in 12 months.
The US women’s soccer team was on Good Morning America this week and during the interview, Michael Strahan brought up Julie Ertz’s husband Zach, who is the tight end for the Eagles. Click HERE to watch the interview
