Forbes magazine is known for compiling lists based on money. It’s what they do.
So they put together a list of the best-selling musical artists for 2013.
Justin Timberlake is on top. No real surprise. He had a huge year.
So nipping at his heels has to be someone like Beyonce, or maybe Kanye West, right?
Think again, friend. The number two best-selling artist of 2013 was Luke Bryan.
Yes. Country music artist Luke Bryan.
According to Forbes, country musicians are the new rock stars. They point out that three of the top ten albums of 2013 came from country artists, while only one was even vaguely rock.
Country music is standing loud and proud. Might be time to polish up those cowboy boots and dust off that Resistol hat…
