I agree with Mr. Garland.
If she was granted conditional release, there may be a parole term
If your daughter were in federal prison, then the her release to Tennessee would not be a problem. She must, however, plan ahead to be released from State prison to Tennessee. She will have a pre-release interview and can use that opportunity to apply for transfer under the interstate compact. Such transfers are far quicker if she was a resident of Tennessee at the time of her arrest. The transfer would benefit from information in the PSI (if one was done) establishing the facts essential to obtaining a transfer. If the goal of such transfer were known at the time of the plea, planning could have started at that time. The PSI could have established that Tennessee was her State of residence at the time of arrest.
Apparently your understanding is wrong because FL does not have parole (for all practical purposes the Florida Legislature abolished parole in 1983).
Your daughter may have a probationary term after her release from prison (this is called a "split sentence") and if so then you will want to explore interstate transfer of probation vis-a-vis the Interstate Compact (please see: https://www.interstatecompact.org/ ).
There is an application process which takes time and effort so i encourage you not to wait until she is released to deal with this; rather if you want it to get done then get in it stat.
Wishing your family luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
