It seems like a Camponotus floridanus, this ant lives on Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, you live in the east of Tennessee, but thats near North Carolina, well, you have the queen, try to see for yourself if it's a Camponotus floridanus, if not, I hope you find what species is ^^

Most likely a Myrmentoma subgenus of Camponotus like C. discolor or C. decipiens. Hard to tell how big she actually is without a measurement.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
