Rock stars celebrate Record Store Day

Jack White honored in Nashville

It might be hard to beat Ozzy Osbourne’s reported comment on being named Record Store Day Ambassador (“I just wish I could find a record store”). But the now-annual ritual of celebrating America’s remaining independent record stores drew celebs and fans out on the traditional third Saturday of April. And it’s totally appropriate that America’s Music City, Nashville, would kick out the jams with one of the major reasons that records, discs, iTunes, downloads, etc. are so popular.

Jerry Lee Lewis, he of the “Great Balls of Fire” and the “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” played live for fans, though it came one day later, due to brutal Southern weather conditions.

On the actual Record Store Day, Nashville’s Mayor Karl Dean presented the city’s first Musical Ambassador Award to guitar god and roots-tunes whiz Jack White, at White’s store, Third Man Records.
