Taylor Swift has added another award to her pile. She's been named Billboard magazine's top money maker.

Swift raked in more than $39 million in music sales, concert tickets and royalties last year. And that money does not include all the extra cash she made from merchandising and sponsorships.

County singer Kenny Chesney was number two on the list, followed by Justin Timberlake, Bon Jovi, and the Rolling Stones.
