It is possible that some of them could fresze.Too late now but it would have been good to cover them with straw or a good mulch.
It would not normally be nessacary in Tn. . The extremely cold weather we had only happens about every 5 or 10 years

With any luck you might just need some pruneing.What size were the trees?Were they grafted?Sometimes the cold can kill the graft but not the rootstock. Wait untill well into spring before cutting anything.
