Count or Sum of Custom Field

I have a custom field called customer. This field can have multiple entries. 

I need a way to find out how many entries are associated with a JIRA ticket. Ideally I want to see how many JIRA issues have the highest # of entries for this custom field called customer so I can see which JIRA Issues have the most associated customer entries tagged with it.
