Picture taken in Gatlinburg, TN near the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in late April. I think it is a tulip tree moth, but not sure. Thanks for your help!

We agree with your assessment that this is a Tulip Tree Silkmoth, Callosamia angulifera, and we would add that it is a female. According to BugGuide: “Males are brown centrally, females yellowish brown. On females the angular white spots are largest on the forewings.”
