Celebrities calling Nashville home include more than Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Martina McBride and other country stars. Artists from other genres hang their hats in Music City, as do the various actors and athletes living in upscale neighborhoods and towns like Green Hills, Brentwood and Franklin.
Some celebs from outside of country music married into the family circle (see famous couples Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, Vince Gill and Amy Grant, Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams plus Carrie Underwood and former NHL star Mike Fisher), so their presence in Music City's no surprise. Others, like Miley Cyrus, come from a country music family (she's Dolly Parton's goddaughter, after all). And of course one of the biggest Nashville celebrities of them all, Taylor Swift, got her start as a country singer, dominating that field before running the pop game.
