Who's Hot (Taylor Swift) Among Touring Acts?

Gorgeous, tall, talented Taylor Swift.
If you think the way lanky (5-foot-10-inch) country singer Taylor Swift looks is hot, wait until you see what her earnings look like. They'll set you on fire. She's No. 1 among the Top 40 touring acts this year with a total of $39.7 million, according to Billboard mag.

Some of the hotties will surprise you and the fact that Miley Cyrus is not on the list--I couldn't find her, anyway--surprises the hell out of me. Maybe she's making a movie. Who knows, but I'll guarantee you she'll sell out a big venue in a hurry.

Here are the Top 6 and a few others who interest me (OK, I'm old and Paul McCartney, Buffett, Elton John, the Eagles and the Stones, are all in or close to their 70s, making them contemporaries):

1. Taylor Swift, $39.7 million
2. Kenny Chesney, $33 million
3. Justin Timberlake, $31.4 million
4. Bon Jovi, $29.4 million
5. Rolling Stones, $26.2 million
6. Beyonce, $24.4 million

10. Fleetwood Mac, $19.1 million
19. Dave Matthews, $13.9 million
21. Paul McCartney, $13.7
22. The Eagles, $13 million
23. Celine Dion, $12.7 million ($11.8 million of it earned at Caesar's Palace in Vegas)
32. Jimmy Buffett, $9.4 million
33. Elton John, $9.3 million
