Taylor Swift – Brand Ambassador of Record Store Day 2022
Taylor Swift now stands as the first global ambassador of the 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.
“Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion.”
In the coming weeks, Taylor will announce a special RSD 2022.
Speaking about Taylor, Amy Lunde, and Doyle Davis, members of the RSD store said, “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, 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.”
Swift also motivated “fans to independent record stores, places that many of them visited for the first time while in search of her signed CDs.”
Right now, the ambassadors for the United States are Fred Armisen, Pearl Jam, and Brandi Carlile.
They further said, “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!”
Moreover, the Record Store Day’s official Twitter handle was also announced.
“Taylor is the first ever GLOBAL Record Store Day Ambassador! We can’t wait to celebrate Record Store Day (Taylor’s Version) on April 23rd!”, the tweet read.
