Did you know Dana Carvey was born in Missoula? Jeff Kober and musician Chan Romero were born right here in Billings. Directors, musicians, actors and coaches were all born in our great state.

Being able to make it as far as these people have is an accomplishment. Seems like anything is possible if you were born in Montana.
