FEARLESS, now quintuple-platinum, also topped Billboard's 2009 all-genre Top 200 Albums chart and was named Country Album of the Year by the editors of iTunes. Taylor's self-titled debut album, released in 2006, currently holds the record for Billboard's longest charting album this century, and she is tied with the Beatles and Mariah Carey for Billboard's Most Top 20 Debuts.
