The premiere of CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story on VH1 last night got us thinking about what a musical hotbed the city of Atlanta is. As we learned, they don’t call it “Hot-Lanta” for nothing! So we decided to do a little bit of research to determine who, along with TLC, are the biggest musical artists to emerge from the A.T.L.


Our list includes acts across a wide swath of musical genres; hip-hop, rock, folk, alternative, R&B and country are all included here. So who are the biggest acts of all-time to hail from Atlanta? Check out our gallery, which is organized in alphabetical order, to find out!
