Taylor Swift visits Nashville hospital

Taylor Swift surprised children when she visited a Nashville hospital on Friday (18.03.16).

The 'Blank Space' hitmaker enjoyed spending a day with young patients at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she officially opened a new radio studio built by Ryan Seacrest's foundation.

Speaking about the facility, which is set give kids the opportunity to run their own radio station on site, the star said: "What I saw when I went there was an opportunity for the kids to find excitement and to express their creativity and to learn about what it is to create content, whether you would like to make your own radio show or whether you want to record. It was so exciting to see the excitement that it brought to this one hospital."

Nine more facilities have opened in hospitals across the US but Taylor, 26, is convinced the Music City hospital studio will draw some big names as Nashville is home to country music.

She quipped: "Can you imagine the artists and the songwriters and the entertainers who are going to be stopping by the hospital?"
