Appears to be a pome, so I'd look at Rosaceae and specifically Crataegus... lots of 'em in Tennessee.
According to USDA Plants, there are:
C. arborea, austromontana, calpodendron, crus-galli, disperma, engelmannii, flabellata, flava, harbisonii, helvina, inanis, intricata, iracunda, macrosperma, margarettiae, marshallii, mollis, monogyna, nitida, penita, phaenopyrum, pinetorum, pruinosa, punctata, ravida, rhodella, ringens, sargentii, schuettei, spathulata, succulenta, tinctoria, triflora, vailiae, viridis, vulsa.

Chances are most can be discounted pretty quickly.

Based on the fruit, the leaf shape and venation, and the apparent lack of thorns, I'd guess Red Chokeberry (Aronia arbutifolia)

The first thing that came to my mind was Photinia pyrifolia, also commonly called Red Chokeberry and I see it also listed here as Aronia arbutifolia with P. pyrifolia in parentheses so maybe it's one and the same?: http://www.wetland.org/plant%20of%20the%20month/nursery_Red_...
We have an entry in the ATP database with no info so maybe it should be deleted if they are one and the same plant?
