Marley secured the number five spot after earning US$23 million.

The "Redemption Song" singer is boosted by sustainability-focused House of Marley audio products and the Marley Beverage Company.

Topping the list for the fifth straight year is the "King Of Pop" Michael Jackson.

Eight years after his death, Jackson is still rolling in big bucks, cashing in 75 million US dollars.

Golf legend Arnold Palmer is the second-highest earner. He brought in 40 million in part through sales of Arizona lemonade and ice tea beverage made in his name.

Palmer is followed by Charles Schulz. The creator of the "Peanuts" franchise made $38 million. While Elvis Presley comes in fourth with $35 million.
