Taylor Swift made the most money of any country star on the road this year. 

The country-pop superstar has the number seven spot on "Pollstar's" 2013 Year-End Top 20 Worldwide Tours list.  She played 73 shows in 52 cities on her "Red" tour this year, and earned $133.4 million for her efforts. 

Swift is the only country act to make the top ten.  And Kenny Chesney is the only other country star on the list.  His "No Shoes Nation" tour included 44 shows in 41 cities, and raked in $90.9 million. 

Bon Jovi leads the rundown.  The group played 102 shows in 97 cities across the globe, earning $259.5 million.  Pollstar.com adds that it was a record year for the concert industry, with the top 20 tours generating $2.43 billion from ticket sales.  That's a 24% increase over the 2012 total.
