Taylor Swift Opens Education Center at Country Music Hall of Fame

Class is now in session at the Taylor Swift Education Center at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The pop star cut the ribbon on her new namesake facility in Nashville during a ceremony on Saturday morning, showing off the museum's expansion to reporters and local high school students, the Associated Press reports.

Taylor Swift donated $4 million to the Hall of Fame to endow the education center, which will include three classrooms, a hands-on instrument room and a children's exhibit gallery for interactive exhibits, all spread over two floors. According to Swift's website, her donation to the center stands as the largest individual artist gift ever donated to the Country Music Hall of Fame, where the singer signed her record contract as a teenager.

"I'm really excited about this music education center and the fact that right now they have three different classes going on today," Swift said in an interview after the ceremony. "It's really exciting that we can be here on a day when they're not only unveiling it, but they're starting to actively use it today."
