I live in E. TN, grew up in W. TN and growing up went to camp in Middle TN. Gatlinburg is very touristy but the mountains are wonderful. The Cades Cove loop in Walland you'll want to go to. Might want to take in the play in Cherokee, NC, Until These Hills - about the Cherokee Indians. In sievereville, the minor league baseball team, Cubs affiliate, has their ballpark. If you like baseball, it's nice. There is a fort in Knoxville, but not big. You might want to also want to go to Norris. The town was set out by Eleanor Rosevelt and built by the CCC. Nice park there and the Museum.
I'd like to add, in Nashville go to the Parthenon and drive the Natchez parkway.
In Memphis eat at Rendezvous and have dry ribs, visit the Audobon Park gardens and the Indian burial grounds ( don't remember how to spell it but like Chuckalissa). The art museum is good and the Italian food.
