Produced by Nathan Chapman and Swift and released on November 11, 2008 by Big Machine Records, the album debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and the Top Country Albums charts. The release sold 592,000 copies in the United States in its first week—the largest sum for a country album since Eagles' Long Road Out of Eden in November 2007. Fearless later became the first album to sell one million copies in 2009, and earned the title of top-selling album of 2009.

On May 23, 2011, Billboard announced that Fearless was the biggest-selling album of the last five years in the US.

The album's lead single, "Love Story", was Swift's first song to achieve commercial success outside of the United States. It reached number one in Australia, number three in New Zealand, and number two in the United Kingdom and become one of the best-selling singles in the United States The album's third single, "You Belong with Me", became her biggest domestic hit, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100.
