Taylor Swift will be Record Store Day’s first global ambassador, taking the figurehead position for 2022 after astronomical vinyl sales of her recent albums. “The places where we go to browse and explore and discover music new and old have always been sacred to me,” Swift said in a press release. “Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion.” She will announce a special RSD 2022 release in the coming weeks.
Anna Lundy and Doyle Davis of Grimey’s New and Pre-Loved Music, a store in Nashville, paid tribute to Swift’s continued patronage of shops such as their own. “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 [and] when she directly donated to help us support our staff,” they said in a press release. Swift also steered her “fans to independent record stores, places that many of them visited for the first time while in search of her signed CDs.”
Recent Record Store Day ambassadors for the United States include Pearl Jam, Brandi Carlile, and Fred Armisen.
