No. 10: Shania Twain ($12,900,000)
Shania Twain is the best-selling female artist in country music history, and that success comes with the money to live however she chooses. She and her husband, Frédéric Thiébaud, own a spectacular waterfront mansion in the Bahamas that most recently listed for $12.9 million, and it’s absolutely gorgeous.

The property also offers the use of a dock slip that can accommodate a 40-foot boat, and there’s an access gate that leads directly to the beach.
No. 9: Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani ($13,200,000)
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani‘s first home together is a real doozy. The couple purchased a 13,000-square-foot, $13.2 million mansion in a very posh area of Encino in the San Fernando Valley in 2020, and they moved in just in time for the new school year. The house is gleaming white with black trim and windows, and its amenities including a very large motor court, a four-car garage and an oversized pool that sits contiguous to a splendid cabana that includes a wet bar and a separate outdoor kitchen. The swimming pool includes an inset spa. The interior of the massive mansion includes a high-tech home theater and a lavish kitchen with high-end finishes and appliances.

It incorporates a number of rare, one-of-a kind artifacts, including a mantle from a former Versace property.

No. 6: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill ($18,000,000)
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw went historic when they bought their rural manor.

No. 4 : Alan Jackson ($23,000,000)
Few stars in country music have lived larger than Alan Jackson. The iconic singer and his wife, Denise, most recently lived in a stunning hilltop mansion outside of Nashville that looks like some sort of royal palace. The 5-bedroom, 8-bathroom, 22,012-square-foot mansion is exceptionally lavish, featuring bedroom suites, as well as formal dining and living areas that are impeccably finished with arched doorways, oversized windows and elaborate woodwork.

Alan Jackson is the first country singer to appear twice on the list of most expensive homes. The country superstar celebrated his success by building an 18,622-square-foot antebellum mansion called Sweetbriar, which features a large formal dining room, a formal living room, a family room with 22 ft. ceilings, a gourmet kitchen and a glass-enclosed porch.

The jaw-dropping property also includes two beachfront yurts, three staff houses, engineering facilities and mechanical storage and a private dock.
No. 1: Kenny Rogers ($46,250,000)
No other star in country music has had the kind of real estate acumen as all-time country legend Kenny Rogers. He lived in a number of top-flight properties over the years, but his home in Bel Air would be the crown jewel of any property portfolio. Rogers first purchased the estate in the 1970s, and he added the lions to the gate and christened the home Lionsgate. He sold it in 1983 for $5.8 million, and the property most recently sold in 2015 for $46.25 million. The 11-bedroom, 17-bathroom mansion totals 23,988 square feet of space, including a master suite that encompasses more than 3,000 square feet, three separate living rooms, seven fireplaces, a billiards room, a formal study, a private 12-seat theater with leather seats, a climate-controlled wine room that opens onto a saltwater pool, three steam showers and a large dry sauna.
