Tennessee time zone map
Providing an exact rule for how Tennessee is split between the two time zones is difficult. While not exact, one could say that time zones in Tennessee are divided at 85° West. However, you can see how the time zone division goes on a bit of an angle. So some counties are that are on either site of 85° West do not follow this rule. But it's a rough guide. Notice how the left side of Tennessee is orange while the rest of Tennessee is green. The orange indicates the Central Time Zone while the green indicates the Eastern Time Zone.
