Being on the radio for most of my life, I've certainly had the chance to meet my fair share of "celebrities".  I won't lie, in my younger days, it was quite the treat, but as I've gotten older, I find that even famous people are a whole lot like you and me.  Some are incredibly kind, and others, well...let's just say not so much.

For some of us, the idea of meeting someone famous is a thrilling once-in-a-lifetime experience, and for others, they have absolutely zero interest in any type of celebrity encounter.

I mean, when you think about it, other than making your friends on social media jealous, what's the point? Having said that, we thought we would ask Montanans if they had to have a celebrity neighbor, who would they want to live next door?

The answers were certainly eclectic and actually included a few people that either live in Montana or spend a significant amount of time visiting the state.

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood

One of the biggest power couples in Country Music would more than likely make for great neighbors.  Garth is known for loving his fans and his generosity backstage, and Trisha has her own cooking show where she creates some amazing-looking food. Sounds like a win/win.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

Another power couple, it is reported that these two live in Montana most of the time and several folks have reported seeing them around the Bozeman area. While taking a bit of a break from the limelight, Timberlake is one of the biggest stars in the last 20 years.  Both a singer and actor, the entertainer is known to be one of the very best in the business.  Biel, who has been on television and in movies, has made her way behind the camera as she has made a name for herself as a producer.

Matthew McConaughey

This Texan is rumored to be part of the growing Yellowstone family and could soon find himself filming here in Montana.  McConaughey is an Oscar Winner and by all accounts, seems like an incredibly decent human being.  Although, it should be noted that the folks that said they'd like him as a next-door neighbor, we're all female.
