question on children born out of wedlock in Tennessee

I am trying to find out a truth to what I have been told about a certain law in Tennessee. If a couple who is not married but in turn are still legally married to other people have a child ,does the father(who is not married to childs mother because she is married to someone else)have to wait 360 days to give that child his last name? The child right now has the last name of the mothers husband(the mother and husband are separated)and childs father was told he can not give the child his last name until he waits 360 days. Is this true and will he need a DNA to establish his paternity when the 360 days are up and he gives the child his name?
