"Small Town Saturday Night" is the title of a debut song written by Pat Alger and Hank DeVito, and recorded by American country music artist Hal Ketchum. It was released in April 1991 as the first single from his album Past the Point of Rescue. The song reached #2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in August 1991.[1]


The song is an uptempo that describes what occurs on a Saturday night in a small town. The song was inspired by the city of New Braunfels, Texas.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Senor McGuire and premiered in mid-1991. It is entirely in black-and-white, and shows the singer in a forest, singing beneath a screen showing The Terror of Tiny Town (1938). In the end, a horse dances with the singer.
