It’s going to a really fun Record Store Day for a very select few Jack White fans in Nashville this year, that’s for sure.

Jack White hasn’t won any awards yet at this year’s GRAMMYs (don’t feel bad – he has nine GRAMMYS on his shelf from prior victories), but he surely earned some new fans with his furious performance at the show.

With this year’s star-studded 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards already boasting an all-star line-up of performers including fun., the Black Keys and Mumford and Sons, it has been announced that rockers Jack White, the Lumineers and singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will also lend their talents to the proceedings.
