More Country Stars That Struck Gold

Jason Aldean

Net Worth: $80 million. Venture: Buck Commander. Known by many as one of the best guitarists in the country music space, Jason Aldean has managed to create his own small empire with a fortune of over $80 million over his career. The country star has mostly stuck to traditional country values, both in his personal life and musical career. Aldean is also the owner of a hunting and fishing gear label named “Buck Commander” that’s based on his likeness and brand.

Aldean was able to organize and invest in this business through the large income he receives from album sales. He’s apparently even more popular than you might think, with his 2010 album My Kinda Party receiving the super rare quadruple-platinum certification by RIAA (which is a super-duper cool certificate). Various of his other albums also reached platinum and double-platinum statuses.

Cole Swindell

Net Worth: $3 million. Venture: The Reason to Drink Tour. Cole Swindell is a singer and songwriter who debuted his career as a solo country singer in 2013, after a full three years of songwriting for other popular country artists such as Thomas Rhett, Scotty McCreery, Luke Bryan and Craig Campbell. Swindell has released three albums so far and is signed with the prestigious Warner Bros. Records label in their Nashville branch. His latest tour, Reason to Drink, was criticized for its title which according to many promotes alcoholism. He’s currently touring alongside famous country artist Dierks Bentley.
