Route Planning Help

I'm buying a truck that's just outside of Cincinnati, OH.

I'm planning on flying up there, picking it up and driving it back. 903 miles or so.

Google maps tells me to come back south on I-65 to I-59 south (Birmingham, AL) to New Orleans, where I'd come back in on I-10.

Following this route I'd go through Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

An alternate possibility is to turn onto I-40 west at Nashville and come through Little Rock, AR on I-30, back down to TX 59 and come in through East Texas.

The google suggestion looks like it may be a little quicker, but I've been through TN, KY and AL before.

I wouldn't mind sacrificing an hour or two of drive-time if anyone could recommend a better / more scenic route.

TIA

So you'd really recommend an Arkansas route over an Alabama/Louisiana route?
