I doubt DL will put anything larger than a 737 on a regular basis at BNA until Concourse B is modified to better accommodate larger aircraft
Will the apron expansion help with that, or is it primarily an issue with the gates/concourse itself?
No, it is an issue with the physical concourse itself. Here is a quote from the BNA Vision environmental assessment
Concourse B also requires modifications to accommodate larger aircraft. Larger passenger loads require larger hold rooms and the existing gate configurations at Concourse B are undersized to appropriately accommodate passengers and equipment associated with these aircraft. MNAA would also modify Concourse B in conjunction with the construction of Concourse T, since three gates (B1, B2, and B4) would be removed to accommodate Concourse T.
It makes sense as when a DL 757 was boarding, the line was forming in the middle of the concourse.
