It is uncommon for a country music star to be born in Nashville, Tennessee. Most of them migrate to Music City to make their country music dreams come true. However, a handful of country stars were born in Nashville, and a few more come from the great state of Tennessee.

Garth, Reba, Blake Shelton, and Carrie Underwood are from Oklahoma, and Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, and many more are from the Peach State of Georgia. Keith Urban was born in New Zealand and Lainey Wilson and Jordan Davis hail from Louisianna.

Let’s look at those country stars who started in Tennessee, where Nashville dreams were just hours away.
