yeah i watched it a long as time ago with dad it is a good move.
I know and have been to a few places that it talks about.
Maynardville is kinda a small county town even to this day, it is probably 30 to 45 min out side of knoxville. I go squirrel hunting on a Wildlife management area just out side of Maynardville is another small town call sharps chapel. you drive thru either place and 95+% of people will wave at you as you pass each other on the road. some of the main road(highway 33) is a narrow 4 lane, I think some is still 2 lane.
knoxville is well knoxville, bearden(where he went off the road) is an area in knoxville. Thats just areas from the song, i think the movie had other areas.
edit: dad was born in 1950.
