On Nov. 11, 2008, a then-18-year-old Taylor Swift released her blockbuster sophomore album Fearless, which would go on to earn the country-pop singer her first No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, where it spent 11 nonconsecutive weeks at the top.
Fearless also led Billboard's Top Country Albums tally for 35 weeks, the second-longest run by a woman and the fifth-lengthiest overall. It became the best-selling album of 2009, gained diamond certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and scored Swift her first album of the year win at the 2010 Grammy Awards.
Now, 13 years later (very on brand for her), on Friday, Swifties will stay up late and relive the magic behind the LP that first hinted at the 31-year-old superstar's remarkable crossover from country to pop when she releases Fearless (Taylor's Version), her first re-recorded album of six. "I’m counting down the minutes til we can all jump into this brave world together, filled with equal parts nostalgia and brand newness. Head first, Fearless," she wrote on Twitter while announcing the track list on April 3.
