Taylor Swift: Journey to Fearless

Concert & Documentary Series | October 22, 2010

Taylor Swift: Journey to Fearless is a music concert series starring Taylor. It aired as a three-night television special on Discovery Family, starting on October 22, 2010, and captured the success of Taylor’s first headlining tour, the “Fearless Tour“.
Taylor’s Journey to Fearless documentary offers both on-stage performances and behind-the-scenes content. Not every song Taylor performed on the “Fearless Tour” is shown in the movie, however the most popular songs are included. By essentially exposing the concert as a story with phases, the episodes keep casual watchers interested while the behind-the-scenes content introduces Taylor and her life story. Taylor provides narration, exclusive home movies and personal photos that chronicle her path from childhood dreams to becoming a superstar performer.

The 2,5-hour film features 13 songs, many taken from Taylor’s 2008 multi-platinum album Fearless, which won a slew of Grammy Awards in 2010, including “Album of the Year”.

Episode 1: Dreaming Fearless

The first episode focuses on Taylor’s meteoric rise from aspiring grade-school singer-songwriter to award-winning country and pop megastar while sprinkling in live performances. Taylor discusses her rise to stardom, her move to Nashville and the release of her first two studio albums, Taylor Swift (2006) and Fearless (2008). Fans also get to see a treasure of archival photos and videos from Taylor’s childhood and interviews with her parents and friends.

Episode 2: Becoming Fearless

The second episode gives fans a behind-the-scenes peek at the preparations for Taylor’s first headlining tour, the “Fearless Tour”, including the stage reveal and the casting for the dancers. For 2010, the crisp and vibrant HD picture quality combined with an exceptional DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless audio track was a breakthrough. It transports viewers from their living rooms straight to an arena packed with thousands of screaming fans.

Episode 3: Living Fearless

Taylor shares video diaries from her life on the road during the “Fearless Tour.” The highlight is the tour’s final stop in Boston, which was Taylor’s first ever stadium show.
