Anyone driven from Boston to Memphis?

My husband needs to drive from Boston to Memphis stopping only to sleep once. Does anyone have any tips, or recommended routes?

He will be leaving on Wednesday morning at 9am and needs to arrive ASAP since he will be starting a training.

Thank you in advance!

Boston (Massachusetts) Memphis (Tennessee)

I have driven in this area but not from those exact locations.  The fastest route will take 19-20 hours and you go from Eastern Time zone to Central, so you lose an hour.  He should drive at least 10 hours on the first day, and maybe more if he can stand it.  Leaving from Boston he takes I-90 W to Sturbridge and then I-84 to Hartford and then Ct 15 to I-287 across the Hudson north of NYC.  Then near Bridgewater (New Jersey) he takes I-78 and across to I-81near Harrisburg.  Take I-81 all the way down to Roanoke.  That is a little more than half way (10.5 hours) Then go past Bristol (Tennessee) and take I-40 over to Memphis
