What we love the most about this inspirational young woman is how she got started. Apparently, music was a huge passion for young Brandy Clark and was already playing guitar by the age of ten. Her parents were her biggest fans at the time (hopefully they still are), and they helped push her to learn singing, songwriting and eventually, pursue her own music career. If you’re looking for a great model on how to raise awesome children, look no further than the Clark’s.

Scott McCreery

Net Worth: $4 million Venture: Weekend Roadtrip. Tour If the name McCreery rings a bell, it’s because 26-year-old Scott McCreery was the winner of the popular musical reality show, American Idol, in its tenth season back in 2011. His success was a virtual guarantee following the publicized and challenging win, as he was offered many records deals with labels all across the United States. He eventually decided to go with Interscope and released his first studio album that year. The album, titled “Clear as Day,” was an instant hit among his fans from the show and received the lustrous platinum status. The album included many songs which ended up becoming very well received, mainly “The Trouble with Girls” and “I Love You This Big.”
