Underwood’s musical ventures and business enterprises helped her secure a serious $65 million in personal net worth. Outside of music, she is also the founder and principal investor in her clothing line, CALIA, which provides sportswear for athletes that are based on her Oklahoma roots.

The Dixie Chicks

Net Worth: $40 million Venture: Someday. This trio of country singers is the fantasy of every country music lover out there. Together, Martie Maguire, Emily Erwin, and Natalie Maines have more combined musical talent and beauty points than we know what to do with. After almost two decades of the trio’s relatively quiet and eager waiting from fans, the Dixie Chicks are finally working on their fourth studio album, Someday, which will undoubtedly be a bestseller.

The three singers first started touring together in Dallas and have found popularity with the country crowded with their unique set of voices and talents. Despite their short time together and very long hiatus, the trio’s best hit singles “There’s Your Trouble,” and “Wide Open Spaces” helped them received three Grammy awards over the years and sell millions of albums over the years. The moral of the lesson is, if you’re going to take a two-decades-long hiatus, make sure you do it after creating a raving fan base that’s going to keep consuming your material and eagerly waiting for your return.
