In 2017 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (May 31) that Oberst is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between May 2019 and May 2020, a nearly $30 million lead over his closest competition.

The American singer-songwriter has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Oberst Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Omaha Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderoberst - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Conor) and a fashion line called “Conor Oberst Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Conor fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
