“I called them at 4 in the afternoon to ask if they could schedule a service call for any time soon. I got a call back from them at 8am the very next day and they asked if they should head my direction. Not only did they show up at my house in less than 24 hours, they also resolved my issue(needed a new pressure tank). Price was great, guys were professional and very informative. I would 💯 use them again.”

Mary Gerson:
“We called for service at 8:00 p.m. Friday night…Tony answers the phone himself….First time customer, Tony says he will be out Saturday morning….He called to let us know he was running a little late, then again. To say he was on his way…Wow…We were so happy with everything…Old school values….Fast, efficient service….Had a fully stocked work truck….Friendly, down home guy…fair pricing. Then he called my husband that night to let him know he accidentally picked up a pair of our pliers by mistake and would be bringing them back…We definitely recommend Tony and will use him again when needed…Henry & Mary Gerson”

Dolly Parton’s Tribute to the State of Tennessee

Sevier County’s favorite daughter, Miss Dolly Parton, posted a video as part of this incredible historic anniversary for the state of Tennessee!

As reported by

“As part of the 225th celebration of statehood, the county music icon lent her voice and her 1973 single “My Tennessee Mountain Home” to a video released Tuesday called “Home.”

“I am Tennessee proud,” Parton said. “I’m proud of our wonderful state, proud to be a born and raised Tennessee girl, and I’m proud to be a part of all that we represent.’

The video features all corners of the state from Mountain City to Memphis. Gov. Bill Lee is seen pulling a music record off a shelf as the video takes a tour of main streets, landmarks and natural scenery highlighting Tennessee’s culture and beauty.

“Dolly is a Tennessee treasure, and I’m thankful she’s joined us to commemorate 225 years of statehood,” Lee said. “I invite Tennesseans to celebrate at events throughout the year … to share the stories of the people, places and moments that have shaped Tennessee.”
