Background and Release
Beautiful Eyes is musically oriented to country pop and contemporary music. It includes new versions of tracks from Taylor Swift: an alternate version of “Should’ve Said No“, the fifth single from the album, an acoustic version of “Teardrops On My Guitar“, the second single from the album, a radio edit of “Picture to Burn“, the fourth single from the album, and “I’m Only Me When I’m With You“, a promotional single from the album. The EP also features two original songs, “Beautiful Eyes” and “I Heart ?”, which she previously wrote in 2003. The EP’s DVD features music videos from the singles from Taylor Swift, as well as a music video made for “Beautiful Eyes” from footage from Taylor’s eighteenth birthday party.
Taylor did not want any misconceptions of Beautiful Eyes as her second album and therefore partnered with the American retail company Walmart to make the EP an exclusive release. Furthermore, it was made a limited release because Taylor only allowed Big Machine Records to manufacture a certain amount of copies of the EP.
