Way back in 2007, Record Store Day was conceived as an opportunity to honor and support independent record shops across the country. RSD was meant to be a day to not only celebrate the stores, employees and musicians, but to also celebrate the fans by offering exclusive and limited releases by artists both big or small and independent or signed.

Since its conception, Record Store Day has grown up to be an internationally recognized holiday, and 2018 might be its biggest year yet. Though there are hundreds upon hundreds of releases that will hit store shelves on RSD 2018 (April 21), we went through the massive list and narrowed our favorite picks — from the wide-ranging country genre, of course — down to 11.

Of course, these 11 choices are not meant to be comprehensive, so make sure to check out our picks in the gallery below, and then leave a comment and let us know what's on your shopping list. And who knows, maybe we'll run into you at your favorite local indie record store on Saturday!
