    That Taylor Swift is a generous gal. She has donated a whopping $4 million to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which is based in Nashville, Tennessee. She is the biggest artist donor to make a contribution to the institution...ever.

    The funds will be allocated towards the creation of the Taylor Swift Education Center, an exhibit and classroom complex set to open in 2014.

    Museum director Kyle Young spoke to the Associated Press about Swift's gift (that rhymes), saying, "In terms of what it will allow us to do, we do education very well now. 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? I think not. I was joking we should be paying her to do that. I was only joking."

    Swift signed her recording contract on the site! So she has history there.
