Celebrities Who Live in Austin

2020 was a big year for celebrity moves – especially in Austin, Texas. So many well known faces made the move to the ATX, joining an already massive list of celebrities who live in Austin.

Wondering about all the celebs who live in Austin? Well wonder no more.

First, a couple of notes. Those listed may not all live in Austin proper but they reside in the Austin DMA (designated market area) so we count them! Many of the celebs listed are part-time Austinites, and two have not actually confirmed a move (they have asterisks next to them). Also, if you find that someone you know of is missing from the list, check the “used to live in Austin” section. Some people actually do move AWAY from Austin (shocker, we know)! A Google search will inform you of most of their new cities and details on the sale of their ATX homes.

Now let’s get to the good stuff.
