Over the weekend, if your a NASCAR fan, or even if you are not and were just starved for something to watch (some of you are guilty and you know it) you may have seen Georgia being repped by second-Generation driver and professed Georgia fan Chase Elliott.

Chase is about as Georgia as they come. He is, in theory from Dawsonville and frequently shows support for both the Braves and the Dawgs....even going so far as to reference Kirby Smart’s “Pressure is a privilege.”

This brings up a question - who are some of Georgia’s biggest celebrity fans?

For this instance, let’s say that to do so, they cannot be a former player.

Here’s a few.

First of you really have to start the conversation and not bring up Quavo. If nothing else...he helps make Georgia relevant even more on the recruiting trail.

For soley performing Dooley’s Junkyard Dawgs...throw James Brown in there. Deal with it, Mikey Adams.

Staying with Georgia’s musical fame, there’s Jason Aldean....the Maconite (ok, Windsor Academy is close enough to Macon) gets a nod for having the G on his guitar strap.

When Samuel L. Jackson tired of the Snakes on the Plane...he ended up in Athens eventually.

And also Ryan Seacrest...a fan who also has come back as a graduation speaker.

Go Dawgs!
