Here's a link to the Amtrak national route map. As you can see it will be a very long trip to get from the Rocky Mount, NC area to Memphis which is the closest passenger train service to Nashville.

Unfortunately train access in Memphis is a north/south proposition; Chicago and New Orleans. Rocky Mount is eastward.

There is modern, decent motorcoach line called Megabus which is cheap and runs from Atlanta and I believe Chattanooga to Nashville and Memphis. Google it to see if this is a good alternative for you.
