You're probably correct.

It might be his brother Drew that was actually born in pennington Gap.

The family moved to Cincinnati, in the Finneytown area.

The James Bros. are one of those that had ties to Kentucky although not originally from here, much like the notoriously infamous "Devil"
(or "Bad") John Wright. He was born in Virginia but most of his fame
and legacy was built on events happening in KY.

Correct. Burdine is also where I live and it's hard to imagine now but Burdine
was once a bustling area with a couple of stores and a movie theater. Hard to
believe by the looks of it these days though.

Here's another non-native Kentuckian but did spend a lot if his life here: Film director and horror buff John Carpenter. He moved to Bowling Green, KY.
shortly after his birth in N.Y. and grew up there. In fact there are many references to Bowling Green and other local areas, places, etc. in many of
Carpenter's films.

I think that Tom Cruise was also born in New York then lived in Kentucky as a teenager. I think he lived in Louisville for a while.

I'm not sure if he ever lived in Louisville but it's possible. I say that's possible and probable he was in the area at times since, and many people don't know this about Thomas Cruise Mapother IV (his full real name) but he briefly attended a Franciscan seminary in Cincinnati on a church scholarship and aspired to become a Catholic priest...long before becoming the brainwashed puppet of Scientology he is today,LOL!
