Brown is the quintessential example of an artist using social media to monetize and build a large following. He was quickly picked up by the RCA label after his music proved to be both critically and commercially successful, making him a millionaire in the process. Brown has released multiple EPs which all became instant hits and his recent album, Experiment, was released just last year in 2018.

Luke Bryan

Net Worth: $90 million. Venture: 32 Bridge. Luke Bryan is a classic Cinderella story of a talented guy who started out in the songwriting profession, working for popular country singers such as Travis Tritt and Billy Currington. One day Bryan said to himself, “Hey, I’m pretty good at this singing thing too! Why don’t I go out on my own and do a solo career?” And that’s exactly what he did. The singer-songwriter was quickly picked up by Capitol Nashville alongside Keith Urban, and since then released nine albums, all of which have been successful and have sold millions of copies.
