Country music's biggest-selling superstar Taylor Swift has donated a cool $4 million to Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
The Washington Post reports that this is the largest artist donation ever given to the Hall of Fame and the money will fund the Taylor Swift Education Center that will open at the museum in 2014.
Museum director Kyle Young said:
"It will allow us to do what we do better, serve more people, develop new programs and I'm happy to say that as we talked through this opportunity with Taylor, she very much wants to be involved in an advisory capacity in what we do. Is there a better person out there who's in touch with a young audience?
"For Taylor to want to engage herself in the life of this place in such an appropriate way ... every way you slice it and dice it, it's great for this place," he continued.
