There should be 2 nuts. Loosen the top one (lock nut) then turn the inner one to tighten up the cable.

make sure the brakes are adjusted in the drum first. they should be almost or just barely dragging when the brakes are not applied.

Make sure the auto adjusters are working as well. They work like a hot damn when they work properly.

Good advice to service the drum brakes before touching the e-brake cable. Also make sure that the L-shaped parking brake "bellcrank levers" are not frozen where they go through the backing plate. (They're the levers the parking brake cables attach to, and they like to freeze up in the brackets. I had to replace the lever, bracket and pin on my drivers side.)

Some drum brake servicing info:
