Taylor Swift, the young star of the country music genre, has opened up the Taylor Swift Education Center at the Country Music Hall of Fame Center and Museum. It was opened on Saturday morning in her home of Nashville, Tennessee. Taylor Swift is a singer-songwriter who has gained great popularity in the country music genre, after moving to Nashville at the age of 14 to pursue a career in the country music business. She has been honored with awards from the Nashville Songwriter Association and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Her latest album, Red, was released in 2012.

In addition to the new center that she opened, she has a history of philanthropy, and has done work with arts education, children's literacy and more. She donated the new education center to the museum as a part of its expansion campaign. She showed supporters of the center and local high school students the new classroom and exhibit space before it opened. The new center will have space for a classroom, a hands-on instrument room, and continuing opportunities for education. Officials with the museum say that her new center should increase educational opportunities seven-fold, as they move forward and start to receive more business in the future.

Swift, only 23 years old, is already one of the most popular artists in her genre, and using her wealth and popularity for good with this business move. Swift's donation of $4 million in order to fund the education center makes it the largest donation by any musical artist in the 46 year history of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The center will be 7,500 square feet, and cover two floors, feature three classrooms, a learning lab, and a state-of-the-art exhibit gallery for children. Her six Nashville Songwriters Association International will also be displayed in the new addition. She is the youngest performer to ever receive the award.

She cut the ribbon to the new center this morning, and those that are able might want to check it out. It sounds as if it will be a great place for kids too, as officials mention that the new center will allow families to make meaningful connections to country music and allow for a great learning experience for the younger generation.
