(CelebNMusic247-News) Taylor Swift Opens Her Country Music Hall of Fame Center
It’s all smiles for Taylor Swift and her newest milestone opening her $4 million Taylor Swift Education Center at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Saturday morning (Oct 12).
We guess it’s Taylor Swift weekend in Music City?
The pop country star, will accept her record sixth songwriter-artist of the year award from Nashville Songwriters Association International on Sunday. Swift cut the ribbon on the new education center she donated to the museum as part of its expansion campaign. Swift also showed off the the new classroom and exhibit space before the museum opened to reporters and area high school students.
Swift said in an interview after the ceremony:
“I’m really excited about this music education center and the fact that right now they have three different classes going on today.”
“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.”
“We’ve been talking about different programs I can be involved in.”
“I hate to call it a lecture because that sounds like I’m yelling at people, but we could do a Q&A talking to students here and a songwriters discussion would be really fun to have at some point.”
The center will have classroom space, a hands-on instrument room and ongoing education opportunities. Museum officials say the new center will increase educational opportunities sevenfold going forward.
