Brantley Gilbert – $10 Million

Ask Gilbert's wife, Amber Cochran, and you'll learn that despite his outwardly harsh and tough exterior, he is actually a kind and sensitive person. More Than Miles, You Don't Know Her Like I Do, and a few other of Gilbert's singles were influenced by his special lady. Gilbert even traveled abroad for an additional eight days in 2013 to perform for American service members in Italy and Kuwait. Gilbert's estimated net worth of $10 million reflects his success in the country music industry and the strong reputation he has established for himself.
