Meet Two of Montana’s Most Famous TikTok Stars
TikTok has become an incredibly popular platform for social media influencers, and two of Montana's most popular TikTik stars live right here in the Gallatin Valley.
Meet identical twins Brittany and Ashley Luly from Belgrade, Montana. You might know them as those_drywall_chicks on TikTok.
As the name implies, the Luly twins specialize in the drywall throughout southwest Montana. Brittany and Ashley learned everything that they know from their father, Steve Luly, who has worked in the drywall industry for over 40 years. The Luly sisters have worked in the industry for about 12 years.
In 2017, Brittany decided to create an Instagram account that highlighted her various drywall projects. Shortly after, Brittany convinced Ashley to join her and the pair created the those_drywall_chicks account. Since creating the account in 2019, the Luly twins have managed to attract over 555,000 followers. One video shared on the account has been viewed over 17.5 million times.

Brittany and Ashley do drywall for a living and never thought that they would eventually become TikTok stars.
I have no idea how one of our videos got over 17 million views. It's pretty crazy.
said Ashley Luly of those_drywall_chicks.
Recently, the team added a third member named Tienisha. A video of Tienisha getting freaked out by a spider was one of the latest videos to go viral on TikTok.

In addition to TikTok, those_drywall_chicks share content on Instagram on a regular basis as well.
Those_drywall_chicks aren't the only Montanans who have seen success as TikTik has grown over the last few years. Several other Montanans have become popular content creators on the platform, which is projected to become the 3rd most popular social media network in 2022.
REID is another popular TikToker in the Bozeman area. His account has over 300,000 followers. He does his own takes on memes, life in Montana, and some instructional plumbing content.

There's Tucker, who lives near Martinsdale and works as a rancher. He gives a lot of insight into life in modern Montana in the agriculture industry and frequently captures the incredible beauty of his property and the quiet moments spent enjoying it.
