Lake City--

One Anderson County town is one step closer to being renamed "Rocky Top."

After three weeks, a judge ruled on Wednesday that Lake City can move forward with the name change.

The House of Bryant, which owns the rights to the song "Rocky Top," argued the city's name change would do "irreparable damage" to the brand the family has created.

The judge didn't agree, saying they did not provide enough evidence to support their claim.

In addition to the change, developers want to bring a "Rocky Top" themed attraction to the town.

Lake City will have to vote again on the name change, but it is expected to pass.
