Taylor Swift Pledged $4 Million to Country Music Hall

She has a heart as gold as her many records.

Taylor Swift donated $4 million to Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to ensure the longevity of the center's education. This is the second largest donation the museum has ever received and the most generous of any entertainer.

Taylor's millions will build The Taylor Swift Education Center, created for young musicians like Swifty.

The gift comes at the right time as the museum is undergoing a $75 million overhaul that will include a new concert theater, more room for exhibits and archives, and a shared entrance with a new hotel.

The Washington Post reports that Taylor's own personalized education center will include three classrooms, an exhibit space, a musical petting zoo and a “wet” classroom space "to make concert posters and other art projects."
