key to getting cheapest fares to nyc is flying out mid week and coming back the following Sunday (on one of the late flights).
Typically you can find better deals on Delta if you fly early in the am (I think it's a 6am flight), but still, not great deals to nyc, especially if you want a direct flight.
Southwest's fares are better but the delay in ATL kinda sucks unless you hit it perfectly.
If you can I'd check Jet Blue in Nashville as an option.
