Taylor Swift knows she’s been incredibly blessed with success in her career. She’s grateful to her fans for putting her in that position, which is why she feels strongly about giving back. One of the projects she’s most excited about is the new education center being built at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, thanks in part to a $4 million pledge she made to fund the center in May 2012.
“I learned all about country music through what I saw on TV and the research that I did,” Taylor said. “I didn’t really know that there was a museum you could go to, to see all these different outfits from all these legends. I didn’t know that you could go to a place and see it all in person. So it’s gonna be amazing for kids to get to have a place where they can go and learn what they possibly can.”
The education center is scheduled to open in early 2014 and will feature three classrooms and a state-of-the-art children’s exhibit gallery. Taylor will kick off her RED Tour with a two-night stand in Omaha, Nebraska on March 13-14.
