Rescued Chilean miner and Elvis Presley fan Edison Pena has an invitation to Graceland, the music icon's longtime home in Memphis.

Pena, who is 34 and married, was pulled from the collapsed mine Wednesday morning.

After hearing that Pena was an Elvis fan, Elvis Presley Enterprises sent various gifts down to Chile, including CDs, DVDs, sunglasses and a book.

Now that Pena has been freed, he has been invited to visit the estate where Elvis lived for 20 years before he died on Aug. 16, 1977.

Kern says he does not expect an answer to the invitation any time soon, saying there are more important things Pena needs to take care of.
