Most scenic drive from Nashville

We are visiting Asheville in a few weeks for a couple nights. Driving from Nashville, what is the most scenic route that will take us through the Smoky & Blue Ridge Mts?

I-40 east takes you through a fair amount of mountains and scenery. At New port, TN you can take hwy. 25 from Newport to Asheville. It will wind through some pretty gorges along the French Broad River and goes through Hot Springs, N.C. where a number of whitewater rafting companies put in and a few old historic lodging buidings and shops are to be found.
