I thought it would be fun to celebrate and acknowledge some of the more notable Acadiana natives that have helped really put us on the map. So, today I'm starting a series of articles where we'll highlight the most notorious people from each parish.
There are a ton of famous Louisianians in the entertainment, sports and music world. Ellen DeGeneres, Payton Manning, Hunter Hayes, Tyler Perry, Tim McGraw and the list could go on and on. This got me thinking, is there one particular place in Louisiana that produces the more famous people? There actually is, and it's probably not a place you would ever guess.
We continue with our Famous People from Acadiana articles. So far we've covered St. Martin, Acadia and Iberia parishes.
I hope you've enjoyed these compilations as much as I have in researching and putting them together. It is a fun learning experience.
We continue on with our Famous People From Acadiana series. This week we head down I-10 to highlight the folks who were born in Acadia Parish and went on to do some famous and sometimes infamous things.
A while back I thought it would be fun to compose a top 5 list of famous people and do it parish by parish. It seemed like an easy idea at the time but the more I thought of the who's who from each Acadiana parish, the more I thought "I can't do this alone!"
