- “After careful consideration, Taylor Swift will not be submitting Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in any category at this year’s upcoming Grammy and CMA Awards,” according to a Republic Records representative.
- “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."
- Swift’s ninth studio album, Evermore, released in December 2020, will be submitted to the Grammys for consideration in all eligible categories.
- Swift’s decision leaves room for voters to focus on Evermore, rather than potentially split their votes between the two projects.
- The surprise album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, giving Swift eight consecutive No. 1 debuts.
- Evermore returned to No. 1 this June for a fourth nonconsecutive week, making Swift the artist with the third-most weeks at No. 1 on the all-genre album chart behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley.
