Amarillo isn't exactly the kind of city where celebrities are common.

In fact, it's breaking news if a celebrity even VISITS Amarillo.

People have also puzzled over why Amarillo ends up as the subject of so many songs.

However, you might be surprised to know that Amarillo has been home to some famous actors, actresses, musicians, and athletes.

Sorry to tell you that no A-listers like Brad Pitt, Justin Bieber, or Lebron James were born in Amarillo. Typically, when that kind of celebrity comes out of a small town, it's well-known. Take, for example, Yukon, Oklahoma, where Garth Brooks grew up. There is an ode to Garth Brooks on the water tower, welcome sign, and at least one street in town.

So while these celebrities have made their impression on Hollywood, they aren't always associated with Amarillo.

You never know who will become a celebrity, so be nice to those classmates and say hi to the football players you see on campus.
