Tennessee governor brings guitar, doesn't sing

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam put on a cowboy hat and carried an acoustic guitar to the podium, as if he were about to break out into song.

But instead, Haslam joked to his fellow governors on Friday that he would refrain from singing if they would promise to come to Nashville for next year's National Governors Association summer meeting. Milwaukee is host to this year's meeting and Nashville has it in 2014.

Haslam, a Republican, says Nashville will offer the governors a chance to see the Country Music Hall of Fame, Andrew Jackson's home and even some whiskey.
