    Not really a lot of options in that area.
    Running 45 east off 24 is one of the better choices.
    You could run that to 65 then go south or take it all the way to 40. A few traffic lights towards the end, but otherwise a good road.

    From say 11pm to 5am, it should be clear travels that way. Sure some trucks, but locals will be off the road.

    Where do you pick up 24 to start?
     
    Cattleman84 and Upinsmoke Thank this.

    I went that way the other night and had no problem. Exit old hickory and run over to 65.

    You can take Old Hickory if you go left when you get off over to I-65. If you go right you can hit 41 and eventually hit Briley Parkway. If going to Memphis go west, south go back to 155 airport exit. Supposed to be open March 15th. Also doing major work on I-440, adding another lane.

    If you'recoming down 57 you could take 64 east to Evansville,then Hwy 66 to Owensboro Ky.,jump on the parkway to 65 at Bowling Green,down to 109 into Lebanon.Very little difference in mileage & miss Nashville altogether.

    Middle of the night you can just run the regular detour.
    I did it last week and had zero delays.

    Prob 430am.
    Any later than that you'll start to see traffic.
     
    Cattleman84 Thanks this.

    This worked perfect... Other than the pickup that died infront of me at the stop light on the bottom of the exit 40 off ramp. I ran Old Hickory all the way around to I-40.

    Thanks to everyone for your help. I have noted all the routes given in my "Truckin" book for future reference when and if they may be needed.
