What is Stevie Nicks’ Net Worth?

The American singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks is worth a whopping $120 million. In addition to having a very successful solo career, she is well-recognized for being a member of the supergroup Fleetwood Mac. As of this writing, Stevie is the only woman in history to have received two inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame: one as a solo artist and the other as a member of Fleetwood Mac.

Many of the songs that Stevie wrote would go on to become contemporary standards. Over the years, she has received the majority of royalties for those works as a composer and songwriter. She received $80 million in December 2020 from music publisher Primary Wave for the sale of an 80% stake in these copyrights.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Stephanie Lynn Nicks, better known as Stevie Nicks, was born in Phoenix, Arizona, on May 26, 1948. The family traveled the nation a lot because her father, Jess Nicks, was president of Greyhound. The toddler mispronunciation of her name as “tee-dee” led to the creation of her moniker, “Stevie.” Her grandfather taught her how to sing duets with him when she was very little, which is how she started singing. Nicks started writing her songs at the age of sixteen after receiving a Goya guitar.

Nicks met Lindsey Buckingham, her future personal and musical partner while attending Menlo-Atherton High School in Atherton, California. In the late 1960s, Buckingham asked her to play with his psychedelic rock group Fritz. The group had some success opening for acts like Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. While attending San Jose State University, Nicks and Buckingham finally left school to focus entirely on their musical careers.


Nicks and Buckingham carried on working together on other musical projects after Fritz broke up in 1972. They were able to get a record deal and release an album together as “Buckingham Nicks” in 1973. Following a string of odd jobs, the two got in touch with drummer Mick Fleetwood, and in 1975 they joined Fleetwood Mac. “Fleetwood Mac”, the band’s eighth album (and first with Nicks and Buckingham), was released in July 1975. Their following album, “Rumours” (1977), sold over 40 million copies worldwide and was the best-selling record of the year. It peaked at number one on the US albums chart for thirty-one weeks and was also the number one album in several other nations.

In 1978, it was also named Album of the Year and yielded four U.S. Top 10 hits. “Tusk” (1979), “Mirage” (1982), “Tango in the Night” (1987), “Behind the Mask” (1990), and “Say You Will” (2003) are some of the other albums she released with Fleetwood Mac.

Nicks released the album “Bella Donna” in 1981 to kick off her solo career. In less than three months, the RIAA certified it platinum, and it later received a quadruple-platinum certification. “The Wild Heart” (1983), “Rock a Little” (1985), “The Other Side of the Mirror” (1989), “Street Angel” (1994), “Trouble in Shangri-La” (2001), “In Your Dreams” (2011), and “24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault” (2014) are some of her other solo albums.

Nicks is renowned for her unusual voice, which features a quick vibrato, her heavenly style, and her meaningful words. She is nominated for eight Grammy Awards as a solo artist and six Grammy Awards as a member of Fleetwood Mac. As a solo artist in 2019 and as a member of Fleetwood Mac in 1998, she is the only female inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Song Catalog Sale

On December 4, 2020, it was revealed that Stevie had struck a $100 million deal to sell music publisher Primary Wave 80% of her library. This meant that while she retained a 20% ownership, she received $80 million in compensation. Song titles such as “Edge of Seventeen,” “Landslide,” and “Rhiannon” are protected by copyright in the catalog.

Live Nation Earnings

In October 2018, a lawsuit brought by Fleetwood Mac’s on-again, off-again member Lindsey Buckingham revealed some of the band’s financial inner workings. After being unexpectedly pulled from the group’s 2018–2019 Live Nation tour, Buckingham filed a lawsuit against his former bandmates.

The lawsuit asserted that each band member would get $200,000 for each show over 60 shows, or a total payout of $12 million, as per the provisions of their contract with Live Nation. Depending on other attendance targets and future dates added, the total might go up to $14 million. The lawsuit was resolved for an unknown sum after three months. In a statement, Buckingham said:

“We’ve all signed off on something. I’m happy enough with it. I’m not out there trying to twist the knife at all. I’m trying to look at this with some level of compassion, some level of wisdom.”

Real Estate

In the Los Angeles area of Pacific Palisades, Nicks purchased a gated residence on 1.2 acres for approximately $9 million in 2005. In December 2017, she put the house up for $14 million on the market. In the end, she failed to find a buyer at that price. The precise date and sale price of the house are unknown, however, she did finally sell it in an off-market transaction. She spent $3 million in 2004 for a penthouse condo with an ocean view in neighboring Santa Monica.

Not distant from her birthplace and upbringing in Paradise Valley, Arizona, Nicks constructed a custom 8,000-square-foot estate in 1981. She lived on the compound with her brother and his family for a long time. In 2007 she sold the house for $3 million.

Personal Life

Nicks got married for the first time in 1983 to Kim Anderson. Her friend Robin Anderson, who named Nicks the godmother of her unborn child, died of cancer not long after giving birth, and Anderson was her friend’s widower. According to Nicks, the only reason she and Anderson married was because they “were grieving and it was the only way that [they] could feel like [they] were doing anything.” However, after just three months of marriage, they filed for divorce.

Individuals Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Don Henley, J.D. Souther, Jimmy Iovine, and Joe Walsh are among those with whom Nicks has been romantically associated. She performed at the wedding of singers John McCauley and Vanessa Carlton and is an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church.
