In 2017 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top.

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American singer has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Church Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Granite Falls Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderchurch - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Eric) and a fashion line called “Eric Church Seduction”.
