Chicken-Fried News: Garth again



A recent Forbes list of the highest paid celebrities features Oklahoma’s Garth Brooks at No. 6. Thanks to a lucrative tour this past year, which Forbes said netted Brooks $90 million, the country music star appeared back on the list for the first time since 1999. Another Oklahoma country star, Blake Shelton, came in at No. 95, which is a bit surprising considering Shelton does not appear to turn down any gig.

At the top of the highest paid celebrities list are boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, which is another impressive feat for a sport that hardly anyone seems to watch anymore.
