Along the Virginia/Tennessee border, this refers to the Bristol/Kingsport/Johnson City metropolitan area. Most exciting thing in the area: Bristol Motor Speedway, home to 160,000 screaming NASCAR fans one Sunday a year. Bristol is split down the middle between Tennessee and Virginia; the other two cities are completely within Tennessee, although Kingsport is right up against the border, and has a counterpart town, Gate City, on the Virginia side of the line.
