I believe the answer is:

tennessee

(Other definitions for tennessee that I've seen before include "Famous American playwright . . . . . . . . . Williams", "16th US state", "US state, capital Nashville", "Seen teens in this US state", "Teen sense observed in American state".)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
