Two of Nashville's iconic venues got a little brighter this evening -- one turning on their massive tree, the other plugging in the lights. 

At the Country Music Hall of Fame, "Deck the Hall" filled the museum with seasonal activities for the whole family. 

And since it's Nashville, you can't light a tree inside the Country Music Hall of Fame without a little country music. 

Country music star and radio host Tracy Lawrence performed some holiday classics and helped light the new, 25-foot Christmas tree inside the museum. 

Access to most holiday programs is free with museum admission.

At Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, it was the grand opening of their "Holiday LIGHTS" display. 

The attraction, which is in its third year, features a million lights, a 20-foot poinsettia tree, holiday carolers and a chance for kids to visit with Santa. 

"I think beyond the light, everyone's favorite part is Jolly and Joy, said Cheekwood President and CEO Jane Macleod, "our reindeer that are here from the North Pole just to be here at Cheekwood." 

You can visit Cheekwood's Holiday LIGHTS every night except Monday from now until the end of December.
