Let's discuss "Rocky Top" for a minute. This is one of those songs that has a dual purpose. It may be one of the state songs, but it's also the fight song for the University of Tennessee. You will hear it during a football game every time the team scores. In fact, the whole campus is often referred to as "Rocky Top."
"Rocky Top" is a rollicking bluegrass song, especially as played by bluegrass singer Sonny Osborne and his band. They play it in triple time. I actually like the song -- unless I'm hearing it when Tennessee plays Alabama, in which case, I'm not fond of it. It means Tennessee is scoring.
