Coming in as the richest ‘American Idol’ alumni is Carrie Underwood. The singer’s country-style music is probably what’s given her the upper hand since she won season four. All of her albums have been top two hits – four peaked at number one – with their sales now over 20 million worldwide.
That’s without even counting her singles, many of which have also been million-sellers. With dozens of awards to her name, Underwood has earned every cent of her $85 million net worth, especially after all the personal trauma she’s experienced.
