The town of Lake City in Tennessee has changed its name to Rocky Top, over the objections of the publishers of the song of the same name. Mayor Tim Sharp confirms the town council voted for the name change last night. The publishers of the song made a last-minute bid in federal court to stop the change. A group of developers hopes to capitalize on the name by building a complex that includes a 3D animated theater, a live music venue, an indoor-outdoor waterpark and a 500-seat paddleboat restaurant.
