event began in the United States, Record Store Day has official worldwide organizers in the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, Ireland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Mexico, Japan and Spain.

"A lot of people got rid of their records back in the 90s thinking it's not going to come back", Owner of Old Towne Strings Ty Striebel describes.

The previous year, one of the largest global music retail chains, Tower Records, had shut down, and record store owners and employees were looking for a way to reignite people's interest in brick-and-mortar record stores.

Dozens lined up in the early morning hours to snag special vinyl releases.

Even HopCat joined in on the Record Store Day celebration.

This Record Store Day, East Nashville's neighborhood record shop, The Groove, is teaming up with ACME Radio to provide live performances and food trucks throughout the day in the stores "backyard".

Crowds elbowed in for prime vinyl releases at Mojo Books and Records in Tampa on Record Store Day, April 21, 2018.

Over the past nine years since Record Store Day was instituted, cities across the country have declared it an official holiday. Vinyl sales made up 14% of all physical album sales a year ago and the top sellers included the Beatles, Ed Sheeran, Pink Floyd and the soundtrack to La La Land.

The increase in record sales are driven mostly be a re-release of classic albums.

As the sales of vinyl records continue to grow, Record Store Day is a great way to get into collecting and supporting small businesses all at the same time.
