posted by Jake McBride -

According to the world's foremost expert in wealth and business, this country superstar has nailed down the top spot among females for 2017 - and it may just catch you by surprise! 

Forbes has released their annual analysis of wealth among the entertainment industry and has listed the top-earning female musicians across all genres - but there is only one country singer on that list. 

Taking the top spot is Beyonce, who earned a mind-blowing $105 million this year. Following up in second place is U.K. icon, Adele, who took home just over half that amount at $69 million. Former country princess, Taylor Swift, slipped down from her spot at the top of Fobes' list last year and landed squarely in the third position with $44 million of earnings. 

Rounding out the bottom three positions are Celine Dion with $42 million as a result of her Las Vegas residency, Jennifer Lopez with $38 million from her Vegas gigs and new TV show, and everyone's favorite blonde country queen: Dolly Parton

According to the publication, Parton is the highest-earning female in country music with a total income of $37 million for the year and giving Garth Brooks a run for his money as leader of the country genre.
