It seems that DJ fees are approaching a plateau as the market matures and becomes more saturated—and top acts are shelling out larger percentages of their performances fees toward live show effects to differentiate themselves from increasing numbers of rivals, part of an arms race that’s pulling in some of the biggest names in EDM.

Calvin Harris is once again the top name on our Electronic Cash Kings list, nearly doubling the total of second-ranked David Guetta, who pulled in $37 million. Not bad for a guy who’s roughly a decade removed from being a supermarket stockboy in a remote town in Scotland.

Dr. Dre, Diddy and Jay Z were the top earning hip-hop stars during 2013 and 2014, combining to pull in nearly $900 million over that span. Right behind them is a name known for nabbing multi-million-dollar properties, traversing the globe on rare private planes and scoring six-figure fees for delivering the spoken word to adoring crowds around the world: Clinton.

For Yearwood, there’s plenty of potential for future earnings beyond the stage. She’s authored three best-selling cookbooks, and her success there has yielded a cooking show, a cookware line and, this year, a furniture brand that bears her name. She could be on her way to becoming the Martha Stewart of country—a notion that feels both strange and fitting.

DJ Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records is part of an elite group of independent artist-run record labels--along with Diplo’s Mad Decent, Skrillex’s OWSLA and Nick Catchdubs & A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold--that is making its presence felt in the electronic music scene and departing from old industry norms.

In 2014, Calvin Harris topped the Electronic Cash Kings list with a haul of $66 million, the highest annual total ever recorded by a DJ to that point. Will he keep his crown this year? Tune in a week from today to find out.

Stewart will clearly go down in history as one of the top late-night personalities of all time in terms of length of tenure, sharpness of wit and general influence on society. But there's one area where he doesn't rank among the greats: earnings.

Ryan Kavanaugh is a billionaire no longer: Relativity Media, which made up the bulk of his net worth, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy today, according to a statement released moments ago. The company reportedly couldn't come up with the cash to pay off debts of at least $320 million.

Garth Brooks pulled in $90 million over the past year, making him No. 1 on our annual Country Cash Kings list. In addition to being the highest total this year, it’s also the biggest single-year payday FORBES has ever recorded for a country act.
