Classic country music star T.G. Sheppard will flip the switch to kick off the Christmas season at Elvis Presley's Graceland on Thursday, November 17.

T.G. and Elvis were friends, and he was famously the recipient of a tour bus in 1976 as a gift from Elvis. Sheppard will kick off Christmas festivities in Memphis at the annual Lighting Ceremony, which will take place starting at 6:00 pm CST on Thursday. The interior and exterior Christmas decorations, and Presley family artifacts, will be up through January 8th, 2017, which would have been Elvis' 82nd birthday. You can watch the lighting ceremony live on the Graceland Cam below.
