Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke has also been mulling on the idea of running for the position.
Nashville attorney James Mackler, who formally announced months ago his candidacy, is showing no signs of dropping his bid for Bredesen.
Announced Republican candidates include U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Brentwood and former U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher of West Tennessee.
Phil Bredesen has been calling potential donors to let them know he plans to join the race to succeed Republican Bob Corker in the U.S. Senate. Next year's U.S. Senate election will be about comparing the Tennessee of today, to the Tennessee of yesterday, and the records and results are clear.
Three sources confirmed the Democrat's candidacy, as first reported by the Nashville Post, on Wednesday.
Bredesen's entry promises to make the race in a deeply Republican state a competitive one.
Bredesen is the last Democrat to win a state wide race in Tennessee when he easily won a second term as governor in 2006.
In October, political analyst Charlie Cook of The Cook Political report said Tennessee's Senate race would become a toss-up if Bredesen runs and that the seat would likely remain Republican if he did not.
Democrats have recruited an A-list candidate to run for US Senate in Tennessee.
Blackburn, 65, has served in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2003.
