Truckers who have hauled Taylor Swift's record-breaking Eras concert tour across the U.S. this summer recently received thanks from the pop star in the form of $100,000 bonuses.

Some 50 drivers for Denver-based Showmotion Trucking each received a check and hand-written thank you letter from Swift, whose concert wraps up its U.S. run Aug. 9 before heading to Mexico. It's estimated Swift will earn $1 billion from the Eras Tour.

People reports Swift also gave bonuses to her band, backup dancers, catering staff, and production crew bonuses. In all the singer handed out $55 million in bonuses.
