TAYLOR'S LATEST "VERSION": RECORD STORE DAY

After selling piles upon piles of vinyl over the last two years, Taylor Swift has been named Global Ambassador for the 15th annual Record Store Day on 4/23.

“The places where we go to browse and explore and discover music new and old have always been sacred to me,” Swift said. “Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion.”

Swift plans to issue a special RSD 2022 release to mark the occasion.

One store in particular, Grimey’s New and Pre-Loved Music in Nashville, is especially thrilled by the news.

Said Grimey’s owners Anna Lundy and Doyle Davis: “Swift has shown her love and support for independent record stores by not only supporting our shop specifically during the dark, early days of the pandemic, when she directly donated to help us support our staff, but also by steering her eager, excited and dedicated fans to independent record stores, places that many of them visited for the first time while in search of her signed CDs. As Swift has grown as an artist, we've watched her fans grow with her and have been delighted to see her taking control of her recordings and working with musicians like Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner, artists whose music has resonated in shops like ours for years. We can't think of a better choice for RSD Ambassador for 2022.”

The full list of official RSD 2022 releases is coming soon.
