Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley Among Top Tours of 2010

The economy seemed to not bother concerts -- especially country concerts in 2010. 

Billboard posted its top 25 tours for 2010, based on total gross earnings, and several of Nashville's biggest stars made the cut.

Tim McGraw is the highest ranking country star on the list, coming in at No.13. McGraw played 71 shows and sold out 29 of them making 44 Million. Taylor Swift was No. 15. She sold out 45 of her 47 concerts, grossing just over $40 million.

Brad Paisley came in at No.17, selling out half of his 62 shows, and grossing more than $38 million -- a feat all the more respectable since he lost all his concert gear three weeks before his H20 World Tour open. George Strait and Reba McEntire are No. 18, grossing more than $36 million and selling out 13 of their 27 co-headlined shows.

Rascal Flatts and Carrie Underwood round out the top 25, landing at No.23 and No.24, respectively. The Flatts guys earned more than $31 million from their 54 shows, while Carrie earned just under $30 million and selling out almost half of her 81 shows.
