The Chattanooga area has produced several Idol contestants who have advanced far - most notably, Lauren Alaina of Rossville, who auditioned in Atlanta for season 10. Watch her audition tape:

Alaina won runner up that year, but it was enough to propel her to country music stardom. She played Riverbend in 2012.
