In 2018 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

The American singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Kelley Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Evans Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderkelley - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Charles) and a fashion line called “Charles Kelley Seduction”.
