Fearless, Taylor Swift’s second studio album, was released in November 2008 and scored the biggest-selling debut week in 2008 for a female artist in any genre and was the year’s fourth biggest debut. Her previous release, 2006’s Taylor Swift, surpassed triple-platinum status, spent more than twenty weeks in the #1 position atop Billboard’s Country CD sales chart, and she became the first female solo artist in Country music history to write or co-write every song on a platinum-selling debut CD. Fearless is the first album since Santana’s Supernatural to top the Billboard 200 for eleven non-consecutive weeks.
Country singer Kellie Pickler is touring in support of her second album, 2008’s Kellie Pickler.  The album, which follows 2006’s gold-certified Small Town Girl, produced three Top 20 singles. Pickler is the second American Idol alumna to have a #1 album on the U.S. Country Album chart.
Gloriana recently released their first single, “Wild at Heart” in January. The band, made up of four uniquely talented musicians, will take their act nationwide with their upcoming self-titled debut album later this year.
