Driving from memphis to NOLA

We're making the drive from Memphis to NOLA.

Are there any areas we should "not" be stopping on the way?

If you are doing the journey within one day on Highway 61 you won't have much time for anything other than kicking about a Blues Museum or two in Clarksdale or doing a quick tour of Vicksburg. If you are traveling I-55 and doing a more direct and quicker trip Madison, Mississippi is a nice attractive town in which to stop for lunch and other necessities. It's located just north of Jackson and is right off the interstate.

No offense to anyone in Jackson, but I would skip it. If we need to stop in the Jackson area, we like Ridgeland on the northern edge.

I agree with tnhighroad that Hwy 61 is by far the best route unless you're in a hurry.
