NASHVILLE (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam and first lady Crissy Haslam are inviting Tennesseans to tour the executive residence during the first two weeks of December.

This year's holiday decor theme is Tennessee Music, and it incorporates pieces from the collections of the Museum of Appalachia, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and the Stax Museum.

Tennessee students also contributed to the holiday decorations by creating ornaments representing holiday songs, gospel music, patriotic music and Elvis Presley.

And there is a tree with ornaments by local artists from all 95 Tennessee counties.

Open home tours will be held Monday through Friday, December 3-14 and on Saturday, December 8.
