This grows alongside honeysuckle in east tn. It seems to be a shrub or vine because I've also seen it on the side of the road and can't figure out what it is for the life of me. Thanks!

Looks like sweet autumn clematis, which can be invasive I've read.

Very similar but these flowers grow into a cone like formation and the leaves look more rounded...

I agree, blooms way too small for a sweet autumn clematis.
Some photos of Tofi's suggested plant which look like a match.

Definitely a Ligustrum sp., of which there are more than a few which are invasive exotics. They will always have simple opposite leaves, which separates it categorically from Clematis sp. mentioned - which will have trifoliate compound leaves with opposite arrangement along its stems.

Clematis terniflora ...common name Sweet autumn clematis have 4 petals...but the flowers are a different shape./arrangement...with many stamens.

Ligustrum is a better fit.
