Taylor Swift will not be submitting Fearless (Taylor’s Version), her 2021 re-recording of her 2008 album, for consideration at the next Grammy or CMA Awards, a representative for Republic Records confirmed to Billboard. “Fearless has already won four Grammys including album of the year, as well as the CMA Award for album of the year in 2009/2010 and remains the most awarded country album of all time,” the label representative said. Instead, her December 2020 album evermore will be submitted for consideration in all eligible Grammy categories.
evermore‘s sister album, folklore, earned Swift her third Album of the Year award at this year’s Grammys. Swift announced her plans to re-record her first six albums after Scooter Braun’s 2019 purchase of Swift’s former label, Big Machine Records, in order regain control of her masters. The next installment in the series is Red (Taylor’s Version), which is set for release on November 19.
