Best scenic route from Nashville to Sevierville

I am bring my mom to Tennessee. What is the best scenic route from Nashville to Sevierville? I know the interstate would be faster but we are more interested in seeing the beautiful countryside.

Hwy 70 works out pretty well. It parallels I-40 and then crosses I-75 near Lenoir City. I would recommend getting on the interstate at that point to avoid all the congestion on Kingston Pike through Knoxville. From I-40 take exit 407 (Hwy 66) to Sevierville.

If you have the time, US-70 aka Broadway of America would be a great choice. Since it runs parallel to I-40 you have the option to jump on if the pace gets too slow. I would recommend getting off 70 in Lenoir City and take 321 to Maryville, the 411 to 441 which takes you into Sevierville. This eliminates Knoxville completely.

I know this is an older post, but wanted to second the route getting off at the Lenior City exit. We like coming in through Maryville, Townsend and Wears Valley. It's lovely.

We recently left the area via Cosby and the Foothills Parkway, stopping at the Cosby part of the Nt'l Park and the Carver's Apple House. Really enjoyed our time. It, too, was a lovely drive. Took longer to get home, but liked the variety. We plan to stop and eat near Douglas Lake in the future.
