As a Kentucky girl, I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that there are several celebrities who are originally from Kentucky. Some of these famous people are known for their films and some are known for their musical talents. Others are best known for being great athletes or leaders of our country. Regardless of what these celebrities are known for, all of them have left a lasting impression on us. Here are 7 celebrities who are originally from Kentucky.

When thinking about celebrities who are originally from Kentucky, the first one to comes to mind is George Clooney.
