About Cotton Eyed Joe, Knoxville

"Cotton-Eyed Joe" (also known as "Cotton-Eye Joe") is a traditional American country folk song popular at various times throughout the United States and Canada, although today it is most commonly associated with the American South. In the Roud index of folksongs it is No. 942. "Cotton-Eyed Joe" has inspired both a partner dance and more than one line dance that is often danced at country dance venues in the U.S. and around the world. The 1980 film Urban Cowboy sparked a renewed interest in the dance. In 1985, The Moody Brothers' version of the song received a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Country Instrumental Performance". Irish group The Chieftains received a Grammy nomination for "Best Country Vocal Collaboration" for their version of the song with lead vocals by Ricky Skaggs on their 1992 album, Another Country.

  • I will go here for ladies night and that's it. It seems like the waitresses and bartenders take advantage of their customers. They have a stamp that says 20% gratuity is added to your bill. That's fine, if they tell you about said stamp. My bill was stamped on the back. My friend's was stamped under her receipt so that she wouldn't see it before signing. I find this to be unethical at best. I almost ended up tipping 40%. I can't imagine service being that spectacular. Feel sorry for the folks that come for a good time and good drinks only to end up taken advantage of.

  • I came here as a bus driver. We parked two buses and trailers out front, side by side. FYI The staff were pretty nice to us and the lunch was good too. I hear dinner was good as well. For my part I was happy, I've never been here as a patron.

  • The venue was trashy and gimmicky, the staff were rude, and the drinks were poorly prepared. It wasn't worth the cover charge to deal with the mediocrity of this establishment. They were subpar in every way. Do yourself a favor and drink elsewhere, you'll be glad you did.

  • Over the bar scene. They sure mix it up here. Don't know if I'm in a country bar or a dance club. Also had an a-hole bartender. You're in the wrong business dude.

  • The girlfriend and I had fun here, but it was a little bit over priced. If you're under 21 the cover charge isn't worth it. It was college night and my girlfriend is under 21 and her cover was twice as much as mine even after her "student discount." Drinks are on the more expensive end. Didn't have a bad experience but won't be going back very often.
