Taylor donated $100,000 to the financially beleaguered Nashville Symphony, the same symphony that, two years ago, gave Taylor its prestigious Harmony Award. (Brad Paisley received the 2013 award Saturday, Dec. 14.)

As usual, Taylor kept the donation quiet, but the symphony tweeted about it.

“We are profoundly grateful for @TaylorSwift13’s donation. Thank you, Taylor, for supporting musicians & music in #MusicCity! Happy Birthday!” the tweet read.

Taylor is no stranger to supporting music institutions in Nashville. You may recall she gave a $4 million donation recently to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
