615 Day was named after the Middle Tennessee area code and celebrates all things Nashville. Music City isn't just home to country stars, so in honor of this day, here's a list of 10 famous, and unexpected, faces who reside in the 615.


1. Steven Tyler

Steven Tyler, rockstar and lead singer of Aerosmith, moved to Nashville while making his 2016 album titled We're All Somebody from Somewhere and has called it home ever since.

2. Kristin Cavallari

Kristin Cavallari and her ex-husband Jay Cutler moved to Nashville in 2017. Since her move, The Hills star opened Uncommon James, a jewelry boutique, in Nashville's trendy Gulch neighborhood and chronicled her life on E!'s Very Cavallari.

3. Haley Williams

Singer-songwriter Haley Williams has always been connected to Nashville as she moved to the area in her teens and formed the world-famous rock group Paramore there in 2004. The artist still spends a lot of time in Nashville and recently launched her own vegan hair dye line called Good Dye Young.

4. Kathie Lee Gifford

Kathie Lee Gifford, the singer, actress, and former co-anchor to Hoda Kotb on the fourth hour of the Today show, moved to Franklin, a town just south of Nashville, in 2019 following the death of her husband and departure from her show.

5. Evan Rachel Wood

Best known for her roles in HBO's Westworld and the movie Thirteen, actress Evan Rachel Wood got her 615 area code when she relocated from Los Angeles years back.

6. Justin Timberlake

While Memphis native Justin Timberlake has always been a Tennessean at heart, he solidified it by purchasing over 100 acres of land in Leiper's Fork in 2015. Less than 30 miles south of Nashville, this tiny town is the perfect spot for Timberlake to get creative and work on his various projects like his clothing line William Rast, various restaurant ventures, and, of course, music.

7. Lily Aldridge

Another unexpected Nashvillian is model Lily Aldridge. While she is primarily known for her various magazine covers, endorsements, and Victoria's Secret runway looks, Aldridge is also regarded for her enviously beautiful home, which she showed to Architectural Digest in 2018. She shares the house with her husband and Kings of Leon band member Caleb Followill.

8. Jack White

Jack White, a 12-time Grammy winner and half of the duo known as The White Stripes, was born in Detroit but moved to Nashville over 15 years ago. In Nashville, he headquartered his record label Third Man Records, which doubles as a record store and performance space.

9. Vanessa Carlton

Her 2002 hit A Thousand Miles put her on the map, and in-between her world tours or headlining on Broadway as she did in 2019's Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, Carlton can be found in Nashville, where she's lived since 2015.

10. Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson, the American Idol winner and mentor on NBC's The Voice, might not be a part of the 615 for much longer. According to The New York Post, she finally sold her Middle Tennessee home for a whopping $6.95 million in May after sitting on the market for over four years. However, once a Nashvillian, always a Nashvillian.

As Nashville's popularity only continues to soar, there's no doubt more stars will flock to this magical and musical place.
