NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- Thousands of people went to independent record shops today for the annual Record Store Day. 

Sam Cooke's "Ain't That Good News, " is one of  Evan Tucker's favorite records he bought today. Tucker owns more than 4,000 vinyl records and record store day is like a holiday to him.

Evan Tucker says,  "Wait in line for like four hours and stress out for like a year, but it was totally worth it."

Waiting in line at the locally owned record shops is becoming more popular, to buy limited editions of music you cannot find anywhere else.

Tucker says, "The music is actually inside the LP, it's actually in the wax. There is no substitute for the way the diamond stylus pulls the sound out of the wax..so that you hear it the way it's supposed to sound. It's just more of a warm, real sound."

Others are jumping to spin on the table, just like Tucker. Thousands lined up at Fond Object, Grimeys, Great Escape and Third Man Records with Jack White of the White Stripes

Jack White says, "It's bigger than ever. Every neighborhood wants to have one."

White set the record today for the worlds fastest released record, which is just under 4 hours.

Resident, Marissa Moss says, "Genius of marketing records. I think that's whats important right now to get everyone excited about buying records and participating in music."

The music is just as important today as the vinyl. Stores like Grimey's New & Pre-loved Music hosted a long line-up of local musicians.

Grimey's co-owner, Doyle Davis says, "We're all music fanatics that's why we do this, and gives people a chance to rediscover the value of the local record store."

Resident, Emily King says, "It helps to kind of foster a community of musicians and music fans in a way the digital age doesn't necessarily capture."

Evan Tucker says,"Music is the only thing that blows my mind."
