Krauss has nominated multiple times for the Oscars thanks to her incredible soundtrack songs and even decided to form her own label, called Rounder Label during a peak moment in her career, in order to make sure she has complete sovereignty over the content of her music. It looks like she’s got the incredible potential for the next few decades ahead of her, and you can be sure we’ll be rooting for her to appear on our next list with a nine-figure net worth and more amazing stories to tell.


Net Worth: $500,000 Venture: Emblem Records. Back in 2008, singer and expert mandolin player Cheynne Kimball decided to go from solo artist to band member and promptly founded Gloriana, a country group starring Rachel Reinert and brothers Tom Gossin and Mike Gossin. The band has produced three albums, with the first two reaching second place on the US charts. Their two most commercially successful songs “(Kissed You) Good Night” and “Wild at Heart” respectively reached platinum and gold status.
