Fearless - Taylor Swift album
Fearless is the second studio album by American country pop artist Taylor Swift, released on November 11, 2008 (see 2008 in country music) on Big Machine Records. It debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums, Canadian Albums Chart, and Canadian Top Country Albums, and has been certified three-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. "Fearless" has already been deemed one of the fastest selling country albums of all time. Fearless is the first album since Santana's Supernatural to top the Billboard 200 for eleven non-consecutive weeks. It has spent the most consecutive weeks (7) on top of the Billboard 200 since Weathered by Creed in 2001-2002. It is also the first album by a female artist in country music history to log more than seven weeks at number one on the chart. Its lead single "Love Story" had reached number one on both the Canadian and US country charts, and 6 singles were top 20 hits. Swift solely wrote 7 out of the 13 songs on the album and co-wrote the remaining 6 tracks.
