ABC/Image Group LA Doubling down has certainly paid off for Eric Church. The “Some of It” hitmaker is the top country artist on Pollstar’s Mid-Year ranking of the Top 100 North American Tours. He comes in tenth overall, with pop superstar Pink at number one.
The North Carolina native’s Double Down Tour has grossed more than $46 million dollars so far this year. Eric’s closest competitor is Garth Brooks at #14 with nearly $40 million, though his receipts are estimated, since he doesn’t reveal his box office numbers.
Next up is George Strait at #20 with close to $22 million, leading the charge for classic country acts. Alabama and Willie Nelson also appear in the bottom half of the list.
When it comes to newer artists, Luke Combs does best, landing at number 33 with just more than $11 million.
