For more than 50 years, The Tennessee Magazine has been the official publication of our electric cooperatives, keeping consumer-members informed about their co-ops, showcasing the wonders of electric service and highlighting the special events around the state.
The cover of the October 1972 magazine featured a special series of Country Music Hall of Fame portraits made available to readers of The Tennessee Magazine. Inside, readers also learned about the Annual Show of the Hickman County Chapter of the National Chrysanthemum Society in Centerville.
