Good ol’ Rocky Top – Lake City Is Now Rocky Top, TN

6/5/17 – Good ol’ Rocky Top. The Lake City, TN, Post Office recently changed its name to Rocky Top to match the town it serves.

The town — which has an estimated population of about 1,760 — changed its moniker in 2014 based on the popularity of the 1960s bluegrass standard “Rocky Top.”

The Post Office commemorated its name change with a special postcard that reads “Rocky Top, Tennessee 37769” and a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by customers and community leaders.

This is the second time the town has changed its name in a bid to attract tourists. Before Rocky Top was Lake City, it was Coal Creek.
