Prepare to sing Taylor Swift’s praises.

The country music darling has donated $4 million to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum for the construction and funding of a new education center, the organization said Thursday in a press release. The center, which will be named in her honor and is set to open in 2014, will feature three classrooms and a children’s exhibit gallery.

“We are deeply indebted to Taylor for this wonderful gift, which will help us continue to fulfill our educational mission and serve our worldwide audience,” museum director Kyle Young said in the press release. “It is not an overstatement to say that the Taylor Swift Education Center will have a profound impact on our museum, our new campus, our city and even our country.”

The Grammy winner hasn’t commented on her donation, letting the gift speak for itself.
