There are many, many places like that. Do you need employment? Are you concerned about schools? Do you want to be in the valley or in the mountains? With a little more info I'm sure we can help you.

I am retired so employment is not a issue. I think a valley would be more to my taste.
Thanks Kerry

There are lots of small towns in NETN that fit that bill. Erwin and Unicoi are somewhat rural (relatively - I see you're from Staten Island. To you, they'll probably seem completely rural.), 10-20 minutes from South Johnson City. Then there's Watauga, Roan Mountain, Butler, Mountain City, Shady Valley, Hampton, Laural Bloomery. These are roughly in order (drive time ascending) from Johnson City & Elizabethton.

Maybe someone else can help you out with the small towns around Kingsport and Bristol. My knowledge there, especially in SWVA, is especially limited.

Though - Rogersville and Surgoinsville are just outside of Kingsport (within 30 minutes) and are rural but are more "incorporated" feeling than most of the other places I mentioned, with the exception of Erwin and Mountain City.

I was thinking Mount Carmel or Church Hill areas just outside Kingsport (to the west). Both are within 30 minutes or less of Kingsport that has just about everything basics wise, good health care and some other fun amenities too. It has beautiful views of both mountains and river but mostly in valley terrain land, not to much up and down driving.
Along with what jabogitlu mentioned above I would also add Telford, Chucky, Limestone and Afton to the west and south west of Johnson City. I think all of those would fit what description of what you have said you are looking for so far.
What else would you like to have or need in a new home town area?

Totally forgot about SW Washington & Greene counties - and I grew up in Afton, LOL! But yeah, Telford, Chuckey, Afton and Limestone aren't quite as rural as the towns in upper NE TN, but are MUCH easier to access.

kerrymac-

Ditto what everyone else said. Good luck. Now you have a lot of research to do. Once you narrow down some of the areas you should really visit. TN is great and I'm sure you'll find your spot.
