Tell Me About Your Town - Claim to Fame

This month's Tell Me About Your Town prompt is "Claim to Fame"...

I don't know of very many famous celebrities form Columbus (besides athletes). But I do know that Josh Radnor (Ted from HIMYM) is from here. And Dwight Yoakam! I grew up with his niece and now I go to church with his mother!

However, my "hometown" Atlanta claims celebrities galore! I put Atlanta in quotes because, while I always say I'm form Atlanta, in reality I lived about 45 minutes to an hour from downtown. But that's how Atlanta works. The metropolitan area is huge.

Anyway, lets see... Some of my favorite famous people that Atlanta can claim are Martin Luther King Jr., Tyler Perry, Julia Roberts, Ryan Seacrest, Ted Turner, Whitney Houston, Usher, Elton John, Jeff Foxworthy, Dakota and Elle Fanning... This list could go on.

Not only are there lots of famous people from Atlanta, the city also hosts filming of all kinds. Of course, you've got The Walking Dead, but also The Vampire Diaries, parts of The Hunger Games, Captain America: Civil War, Ant Man and many more lesser known movies and shows. I don't know what it is about Atlanta, but I guess it's a good place for filming.

So today I most definitely claim Atlanta for "Tell Me About Your Town!"
