RSD 2023 IS A (LITERAL) FAMILY AFFAIR!
We're thrilled to announce that the RECORD STORE DAY AMBASSADORS for 2023 are husband-and-wife record store lovers AMANDA SHIRES AND JASON ISBELL!
"We’re honored to be your Record Store Day ambassadors for 2023. Record stores are gathering places. They’re rooms full of carefully curated art and entertainment where you can find a friend, take a date, start a band. We all need these gathering places now more than ever. In your local record store you find common ground and the excitement of discovery. A great new album can make a grumpy old man (like Jason) feel like a kid again. We’ve both worked in record stores, played our songs there, built our careers there. Record stores make it possible for recording artists to find their audience and their voice, and we couldn’t be more excited to help make 2023 the biggest and best Record Store Day yet.”
