Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw 'Ultimate Performers'

Kenny Chesney placed No. 2 on the list of ‘Ultimate Performers’ of the decade. The LA Times compiled the list of the Top 10 'Ultimate Performers’ of the decade by combining the revenue of tours and album sales from 2000-2009. 
At $742 million, Chesney comes in second to Celine Dion, who reached a combined income of $747.9 million. Following Chesney is the Dave Matthews band, who came in at $737.4 million, the Beatles at $627.3 million and U2 at $609.7 million.
Toby Keith also made the list at No. 6, grossing almost $592 million. Bruce Springsteen made $588.3 million, followed by the Rolling Stones at $569 million. Tim McGraw is No. 9 with $550.2 million, and rounding out the Top 10 is Britney Spears at $494.3 million. 
Chesney decided to take time off the road this year to work on a new album. Meanwhile, McGraw will be hitting the road for his Southern Voice tour along with Lady Antebellum, Lost Trailers and Love and Theft as opening acts. Keith is also hard at work heading the newly formed Show Dog-Universal South record label.
