Lake City = Rocky Top???

I just came across this article stating that the officials of Lake City, a town 20 miles north of Knoxville, are lobbying to change their name to Rocky Top. The article says that a company who makes candy corn wants to move their business to the town to sell their candy "corn from a jar". As an alumni of UT, I am not a fan of Rocky Top being anywhere but Knoxville, TN. When I sing Rocky Top, I sure as heck ain't singing about Lake City being home sweet home to me. Come on Man!!!!! Go Vols! #RockyTopKnoxville

Since there is a mention of a moonshine still in the song, there should fire one up.
