Mirror, mirror on the wall, who are the highest paid country musicians of them all? That honor goes to country favorites Taylor Swift and Kenny Chesney.

Garth Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood like to get their hands dirty for a good cause. The pair, who first visited Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake, returned to the city of Leogane to participate in Habitat for Humanity’s 29th annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. The couple, along with nearly 600 volunteers, helped build 100 homes in the Santo community. Garth was shaken by his first trip to the country, which took place soon after the disaster.
Got ya! Still just rumors about Garth going back on tour in 2014. Sorry but it had to be done.
