Taylor Swift has been named the first-ever Record Store Day global ambassador.
Swift will serve as Record Store Day Ambassador for this year’s event on April 23, marking the 15th anniversary of the annual celebration.
The global superstar said she is very proud to be this year’s Ambassador for Record Store Day.
“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 statement. “Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion. They create settings for live events. They employ people who adore music thoroughly and purely.”
“Those people and shops have had a rough few years and we need to support these small businesses more now than ever to make sure they can stay alive, stay eccentric, and stay individual,” she added. “It’s been a true joy for me to watch vinyl sales grow in the past few years and we, the artists, have the fans to thank for this pleasant surprise. Happy Record Store Day, everyone! Stay safe out there.”
“We’re thrilled to learn that Taylor Swift is our 2022 Record Store Day Ambassador!” Grimey’s Anna Lundy and Doyle Davis said.
