Taylor Swift may have gone home without any Grammy wins this year, but the singer is still the best paid.

Billboard just released its annual list of highest-paid musicians.

The 24-year-old artist tops the list for the second year in a row by bringing in nearly $US40 million.

Swift’s revenue from six months of touring brought in an estimated $30 million, according to Billboard.

While Swift tops the list, it was also a year in which she gave a lot of it away being named the most charitable celebrity in 2013.

Rounding out the rest of the top 10 were talent ranging from Maroon 5 and Pink to Fleetwood Mac, who returned to touring after nearly a decade.

Here’s Billboard’s Top 10 Money Makers:

1. Taylor Swift – $39,699,575.60

2. Kenny Chesney – $US32,956,240.70

3. Justin Timberlake – $US31,463,297.03
