Country superstar Taylor Swift has been named Billboard.com’s Top Money Maker for the second time.

The “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” hitmaker has beaten out Kenny Chesney, Justin Timberlake and The Rolling Stones for the No. 1 spot thanks to profits from her “Red” album and tour, which landed her an estimated $39.7 million fortune in 2013.
