looks like Epiphragma solatrix

If this is indeed Epiphragma solatrix, it might be a state record. after I saw TN wasn't on the map on BugGuide, I did a brief search on google and didn't find anything good.

an example of what
Blaine pointed out: that BugGuide's distributions maps aren't definitive because they're not systematic surveys of the presence/absence of a species. I'd be really surprised if this species was found in Kentucky and Virginia, skipped Tennessee and the Carolinas, and then showed up again in Louisiana and east to Georgia. You may very well have a new state for this species on BugGuide but I don't know that this is the first observation of E. solatrix in Tennessee
