 Forbes.com released their list of country music's top earners, and TOBY KEITH is #1, pulling in $65 million over the past 12 months.  Oddly, it's the same amount he made the previous year.  His fortune comes from his ownership in Show Dog Records, the "I Love This Bar & Grill" restaurants . . . plus record sales, touring, and sponsorship deals.



TAYLOR SWIFT was right behind him at #2, earning $64 million.  Her wealth came from touring, record sales, plus sponsorship deals with Diet Coke, Keds and Cover Girl.



KENNY CHESNEY was third at $44 million, which is impressive considering he spent most of the year in the studio.

BOSTON (Reuters) - Forty-six music fans were treated for mostly alcohol-related medical problems at Australian country singer Keith Urban's concert outside Boston on Saturday night, local officials said.

Fire and emergency medical personnel dealt with dozens of ill fans during the show at an outdoor arena in Mansfield, Massachusetts, about 25 miles (40 km) south of Boston, the town's police and fire departments said in a joint statement on Sunday.

Some 22 people were transported to area hospitals, mostly for alcohol-related illness, and more than 50 people were taken into protective custody by police, who noted that the large number of people needing treatment prompted authorities to call in ambulances from five nearby communities.

"Last evening's Keith Urban concert was not anticipated to present with the volume of issues handled," officials said in the statement.

The incident came a month after dozens of people were taken to hospitals for drug and alcohol-related illnesses at a house music concert at Boston's TD Garden.

Urban, a Grammy winner who is married to Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, was tapped last month to return as a judge on Fox's television singing competition "American Idol."

There's nothing like a favorite chair that hugs you like a second skin, but one designer has taken things a step further with her latest project.

"A Body of Skin" is a furniture collection designed to look like elements of the human body.

The brainchild of designer Gigi Barker for Studio 9191, the chairs and footstools have been made using a silicone base and molded leather cover impregnated with aftershave and pheromones to make the experience as fleshy as possible.

The chair is not recognizable as a particular body part but the aim, Barber says, is "to explore the intricate subtleties and varieties of the skin surface and the volumes of the flesh."

The connection made when people sit in the chair "questions the relationship and level of comfort we have in our own skins and with an other," she adds.

"Molded leather provides a potential familiarity and thus more subtle visual impact.

"However, it is literally a piece of skin, removed from a body, a direct translation rather than a representation of the material."

"A Body of Skin" pieces are currently available to purchase from 9191, with prices ranging from $747-$2,546. The collection will also be on display during the London Design Festival this September.

Here's a couple of pictures of this WEIRD furniture - would you put this in your LIVING room??
