Hueytown is a city in western Jefferson County, Alabama, United States. It is part of the Birmingham metropolitan area. At the 2010 census the population was 16,105.
It was the home of the legendary NASCAR Alabama Gang. It also made international headlines in 1992 with the unexplained "Hueytown Hum", a mysterious noise believed to be related to large ventilation fans for an underground coal mine in the area.
The northern area of this city was damaged by an EF4 tornado on April 27, 2011.
