Will Taylor Swift's Re-Recorded Songs/Albums Be Eligible for the Grammys?

Short answer: yes.

Taylor Swift is re-recording her entire pre-Lover discography, in a bid to own her masters, with Fearless being the first album to be released on April 9th. According to a Grammy spokesperson, “Current eligibility guidelines would allow for the new performances and albums to be eligible if they were recorded within the last five years. However, none of the older songs would be eligible for songwriting awards.”

Fearless (Taylor's Version) will include six never-before-released songs, which would be eligible for songwriting awards as well.

Artists such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Orbison, and Elton John have been nominated for re-recordings before, and some have even won, though it's more common for Grammy voters to nominate and award brand new songs.
