The LA Times recently made public its famed Top 20 Grossing Music Acts of the Year and this year the only Hip-Hop entry was Lil Wayne (naturally) but way down the list at number 18. Here is a full rundown of who made the list and just how much they earned from ticket sales, digital downloads and CD sales over the last year. The average age has got to be at least 45 for this list, proving I guess that age is really nothing but a number.

3) Kenny Chesney $95.7 million
4) The Eagles $90.7 million
5) AC/DC $82 million
