We make this trip all the time (DW's elderly mom is in MI and we visit frequently)
I suggest you cut over at the I75/ I10W interchange just south of Atlanta. Take I10W to I65N - be aware that I65 construction is ongoing in Birmingham; just do not transit during commute hours. Even with the construction it beats taking I75 through Atlanta
Take I65N. You will have some construction from @ Bowling Green to Louisville but it is not bad nor does it ever (in our experience) back up.
Recommend you stay on I65 to Indianapolis and then catch I465E to I69N.
Now, depending on where you are going in MI, you can either take US24E-I475-I75N @ Toledo (if you are going to lower MI)
If, like us, you are going to go above Detroit, we take I69N to I94E and then route yourself accordingly depending on where in MI you need to go.
Hope this helps!
