Los Angeles: Taylor Swift is making it rich in the music world. The country music star has been named top money maker of 2011 by a website.

The 22-year-old singer didn`t release any album in 2011. But her estimated $35.7 million wealth amassed from her Speak Now Tour profits, album sales and digital successes gave her an edge over U2 and fellow country star Kenny Chesney on the rich list by Billboard.com, reports contactmusic.com.

Some of Swift`s popular songs include ‘Love story’ and ‘Teardrops on my guitar’.
