Music Charts Magazine® History
– Song for the month of September 2016:
“Saturday Night In Hickman County”
Hickman County is a county located in the U.S. state of Tennessee. As of the 2010 census, the population was 24,690. Its county seat is Centerville.
Hickman County is part of the Nashville-Davidson–Murfreesboro–Franklin, TN Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Hickman County was named for Edwin Hickman, an explorer and surveyor who was killed in an Indian attack at Defeated Creek in 1791. The county was established in 1807, and named for Hickman at the suggestion of Robert Weakley, a legislator who had been a member of Hickman’s surveying party.
Throughout the 19th century, the county’s industry revolved around iron furnaces, which made use of the county’s natural supply of high-quality iron ore. Early furnaces included Napier’s furnace near Aetna, which was destroyed by Union soldiers during the Civil War, and furnaces built by the Standard Coal Company in the 1880s.
Hickman natives include songwriter Beth Slater Whitson and Grand Ole Opry personality Minnie Pearl. William F. Lyell was a corporal in the United States Army during the Korean War. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions on August 31, 1951.
The county is the subject of the Johnny Cash song, “Saturday Night In Hickman County,” and the Hickman community of Grinder’s Switch is indirectly mentioned in the song, “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” by the Charlie Daniels Band (one line refers to the band Grinderswitch, and their song “Right On Time”).
