An allergist told my friend that TN is one of the worst states for allergies. KY is probably the worst and then TN is second. I also read that most areas of TN are so wooded that you get so much volume of the tree pollens. I think it all depends on which things you're allergic to. Personally I think I am better off in the woods, because at least I avoid air with chemicals and smoke.

I went to Memphis in August 2014. The city seemed polluted to me but not that bad mold-wise.
I spent the night at the T.O. Fuller State Park on the southwest side of the city, and it actually felt pretty good. That is not surrounded by a good neighborhood but I felt pretty safe there, except for getting attacked by wasps. The bathrooms there had showers and were fine.
The south side of the city where Graceland is had better air than downtown. Graceland itself, including all the related buildings, felt fine to me, mold-wise. (Note that my reactivity is not super-high anymore though.)
As cities go, I think that Memphis is better than most, at least in summer. 4 - Good, for a city.
I drove from memphis to nashville. Dont remember anything significant about Memphis but nashville was awful. One of the worst cities in the northeast. This was in december too, though, so the cokd may have had some effect
