I wouldn't go through Knoxville. I'd get off of I-75 at the Lenoir City/Hywy 95/73 exit and keep on 73 through Wears Valley on over to Highway 71. Sevierville would then be just 4 miles north on 71.
We have friends from Nashville that go to the Great Smokies frequently and they clued us in on that route. We did it last June and 95/73 was a very good road, not a lot of traffic and pretty scenic. The first half of the route, over to Walland, is four lane, the rest two lane but very good shape.
