The band has been well received from the very beginning, winning the American Music Awards’ Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Since their strong and critically acclaimed debut, the band’s commercial success has been declining quite rapidly, with the first album, “Gloriana,” standing at 235,000 sales, the second, “A Thousand Miles Left Behind” at 118,000, and the third, simply called “Three”, at an estimated 40,000 sales. The group was effectively disbanded after the release of their third album.

Gretchen Wilson

Net Worth: $4 million. Venture: Country Bands Together. If you’re looking for a classic country singer to listen to during long road trips and drives, look no further than the beautiful and very talented Gretchen Wilson. The country singer made her debut with a Grammy-winning single called “Redneck Woman” and has consistently produced award-winning albums and songs ever since.

Her most successful album to date, “Here for the Party” has been awarded five-times Multi-Platinum status by the RIAA for exceeding sales of five million copies. Wilson’s debut single “All Jacked Up” is considered to be one of the best female debut singles in history. In her relatively short time in the music industry, Wilson has made a few million dollars and became a sponsor of a women’s softball league in Pierron, Illinois. She was arrested last year for causing a public disturbance at the Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, but has otherwise stayed away from mischief and trouble.
