Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'm licensed in Tennessee. I'll be glad to assist.
In order to object to appearing as required by the subpoena, you will have to file a motion to quash. In order to do so, you would copy the heading on the subpoena with the court name and case caption and under that you title it "Motion to Quash". In the body of the document, you would explain the reasons for wanting the subpoena quashed and any law supporting your reasons, sign the motion and provide your contact information, then have a section titled "certificate of service" and put the date and name of the opposing party/parties you have sent a copy of the motion to and sign that. File your original motion with the clerk of the court that issued the subpoena, get the clerk to stamp a copy as your proof of filing and mail another copy to the opposing party.
There are several sample motions online like this one: https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/394089/copy-of-motion-to-quash-mayor-burchetts-subpoena.pdf
