Taylor Swift will not be submitting her re-recorded Fearless (Taylor’s Version) for Grammy and CMA Awards consideration. However the 31-year-old Swift will be placing her ninth studio album ‘Evermore’ up for nomination in each eligible class.
Swift re-recorded her 2008 second studio album after Scooter Braun bought Big Machine Records which held the rights to her first six albums in 2019. In a press release to Billboard, a Republic Records consultant stated: ‘After cautious consideration, Taylor Swift won’t be submitting Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in any class at this year’s upcoming Grammy and CMA Awards. Fearless has already received 4 Grammys together with album of the year, in addition to the CMA Award for album of the year in 2009/2010 and stays probably the most awarded nation album of all time.’
In 2020, Swift launched two new albums, folklore and Evermore. Folklore received Album Of The Year on the Grammys this previous March; yhe companion album, Evermore, launched in December 2020 and is eligible for the 2022 Grammys.
