Nashville’s own Jack White has been appointed the Ambassador of Record Store Day 2013. He owns a record store in Nashville. And by record store, we mean record store. He has a record label. He makes records – both by making music that goes on records and actually recording music from other musicians and making records out of it. Who else could do this job justice? Record Store Day is April 20 this year. So, get out and enjoy your local record store. Get some new music. Meet some new people. Like Mr. Ambassador says, “Let’s wake each other up.”
“As Record Store Day Ambassador of 2013 I’m proud to help in any way I can to invigorate whoever will listen with the idea that there is beauty and romance in the act of visiting a record shop and getting turned on to something new that could change the way they look at the world, other people, art, and ultimately, themselves.
Let’s wake each other up.”
