Rouge Roubaix, St Francisville, LA middle of March. Race is on one day, Gran Fondo the other. Get some "off-road" on this one.
In AL, look for the Alabama Backroads Century Series. Four different April options. I've done Old Howard several times. Reasonably flat, usually has some wind. I've also done the Tour de Blue. It's here just outside Birmingham. Over twice the elevation of the OH ride, with some nice climbs, and views from the tops.
in March, there's a metric in Sylacauga just S of B'ham Restoration Ride. Put on by a friend of mine.
I don't have any insight in MS rides, but you can always check out the USACyling Fun Ride calendar for MS.

If you want to bend your route slightly north, please consider the inaugural Pedals and Blooms Bike Tour in Dyer County, Tennessee, on April 9th. The ride features routes of 20, 30, and 65 miles and begins at 8:00 a.m. with proceeds going to Dyer County United Way.

It is a little later in April, however the Cardiac Classic is kind of the first "official" ride of the year for Central AR. April 23 is the date.
