According to Billboard’s Top Money Makers In Music list, country-pop sensation Taylor Swift is pulling in the most money in the music industry right now!

Just last year alone, Swift earned more than $35 million, from touring, album sales, royalties, endorsements, etc.

Coming in second on the list is U2 with $32 million, followed by Kenny Chesney, Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne, with $29 million, $25 million and $23 million earned respectively, rounding out the top 5.

Music industry newcomer Adele was No. 10 on the list with $13 million earned, mainly from the impressive sales of her latest album “21,” which has spent the past 23 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, making history as the longest-running No. 1 album in Nielsen SoundScan’s history. (Sidenote: She probably would have been higher on the list, but she spent most of 2011 recovering from emergency vocal chord surgery.)
