Tennessee could play host to the 2024 summer Olympic games.
Leaders in Nashville and Memphis received letters from the US Olympic committee this week to gauge their interest about a bid for the games.
At an event Wednesday, Nashville's mayor said he was flattered, but has not made a decision about a response to the committee.
Nashville and Memphis are among 35 cities that got the letter. Others include Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver, Washington DC, Orlando, Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago.
The last American city to host the summer games was Atlanta in 1996.
