"Rocky Top" is one of seven official state songs of the state of Tennessee, as well as the unofficial fight song for the University of Tennessee Volunteers. The two best-known versions of the song are by the Osborne Brothers and Lynn Anderson. The Osborne Brothers first had a regional hit with the song in 1967 and reached number thirty-three on the U.S. Country chart. Lynn Anderson did even better on the charts with her version in 1970, when it peaked at number 17.
In 2005, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ranked "Rocky Top" number seven on its list of 100 Songs of the South.
