I assume you are taking Natchez Trace to Nashville?
Or are you hitting the Interstate for most of this?
From Nashville to Mammoth is pretty slim pickings scenic wise unless you zig zag some local roads.
Mammoth to Lexington will be a snooze fest. Just not much to see unless you take 68 which might help a little. You familiar with the Daniel Boone Forest? If you want to divert yourself east from Mammoth Cave, take Cumberland Parkway to Somerset. Find a route over in to the DB and then zig zag your way up all the way to Slade, KY where you will find one awesome place called Red River Gorge. Even if you don't go east and decide to take Interstate or 68, you will still be going so close to Slade, KY later anyway, that you don't want to miss Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge. Then, work your way up through the DB again and visit Cave Run Lake and Zilpo byway (hit up the firetower, one unbelievable panoramic view!). Keep going through DB and you will dump right back on to 60 or the interstate west of Huntington.
