Taylor Swift Supports Country Music Hall Of Fame
Whether or not you're a fan of Taylor Swift's music, you should know that she's giving back to the Country Music community by preserving Country Music History for years to come. Swift recently donated four Million dollars to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
According to the Country Music Hall Of Fame, Swift's gift is the largest capital contribution by an individual artist in the museum's 45-year history, prompting the museum to name the new space the Taylor Swift Education Center. The gift was made in conjunction with 'Working on a Building: Country Music Lives Here', the capital campaign that will finance the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's expansion from 140,000 square feet to more than 350,000 square feet. Swift has for years been a generous supporter of the museum, performing for the institution's many 'All for the Hall' benefit concerts.
Although her music might be a little pop, and she's often the subject of negative reviews from critics, let's take a moment to say thank you for helping preserve the memories of Roy Acuff, Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Reba McEntire, George Strait, and other Hall of Famers like Charley Pride, Minnie Peal, Bill Anderson, and Ray Price. With Taylor's support 'her' young fans may also discover some of these legends who helped pave the way for modern Country Music. Not to mention, 50 years from now, stars like Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, and Keith Urban will also have the chance to have their music and memories enshrined.
