Famous People You Didn’t Know Were From Louisiana

I moved to Louisiana almost a year ago and so far my experience here has been amazing from the food to the people I’ve loved it all! The people of this state have been the nicest, friendliest most welcoming people I’ve ever met. We all know people like Louie Armstrong, Terry Bradshaw, Britney Spears and the guys from Duck Dynasty are from Louisiana but there’s a lot of others you might not have known about..

Ellen is famous for her talk show and appearances in popular animated movies but before all that she not only was born in Louisiana but went to the University of New Orleans!

Trace Adkins- Sarepta, Louisiana

Trace is known for his country music and movie roles but before all that he was a walk on at Louisiana Tech as an offensive lineman.

Tim McGraw- Delhi, Louisiana
