If you dig deeper, you will notice that up until 2006, there were a number of rural counties in Western and Middle TN which consistently voted Democratic, but from 2008 onward, these counties have been pretty solidly Republican.

I wonder what happened in 2008 that caused them to flip... 🤔

My best guess is that 2008 was around the time ancestral Democratic voters from the TVA-era finally diminished to the point that they could no longer keep those counties as Democratic strongholds.
