Brandi Carlile has been named the Record Store Day 2020 Ambassador. She’s the newest in a line of artists chosen by RSD organizers to symbolize the annual occasion, which falls on April 18 this 12 months. Past artists to be named ambassador embrace Pearl Jam (2019), Run the Jewels (2018), St. Vincent (2017), and Metallica (2016).
“The Twins and I have never made an album that we didn’t intend to be in an independent record store,” Carlile stated in an announcement, referring to her career-long collaborators Tim and Phil Hanseroth. “Thank you so much for recognizing this love in me and the Twins and giving us this opportunity. We won’t let you down.”
