Dream on, Mark!
I've never found Wild Turkey 12yo in Tennessee below $48 or above $56 -- then you add the sales tax, which ranges locally between 9.25% and 9.75% (yep, we pay almost 10% on school clothes and Pampers!). On the other hand, I HAVE found it.
As for Weller 19yo, I did see 4 bottles in a Bowling Green, KY store in April -- @ $225 each!
Sevenmag, some good news and some bad news -- I work in a TN liquor store part-time, and have been bourbon-scouting central Tennessee for some time. There are good things to be had. But, many of the rural counties through which the annual X-Mile Yard Sale traverses might not contain many. It is the rural counties in Tennessee (and in KY) that are more likely to be dry in terms of liquor sales (beer might be available). That's not universally true, but generally so. Keep your eyes out, but you may have to stray off-course and hit fair-sized cities.
That said, I've found WT12, AAA 10yo, old tax-stamped versions of about anything (buy 'em -- they generally were entered into barrels at lower proof, so are deeper-flavored bourbon), Hirsch 16 (though never Hirsch 20 -- that was in Indiana
), Stitzel-Weller Old Fitz (look for DSP-KY-16 on the label of any BIB bottling), older Evan Williams Single Barrels (as far back as '89), past years' Old Forester Birthday Bourbons, Batch 1s of Woodford Reserve and Sam Houston, and National Distillers' bottlings of Old Taylor, Old Crow and Old Grand-Dad. Others, too, I'm sure, that don't come to mind right now.
Tennessee is a private license (not control) state, so many things -- almost anything
-- is available, though not all things will be available in the same store.
