There's no lack of passion for 'Granddaddy's Gun,' Aaron Lewis' new single. The rocker-turned-country singer's ode to the lessons taught by his grandfather topped Chris Cagle's 'Dance Baby Dance' over the weekend. Today, he'll face off against another sweet ballad. 

Chris Stapleton is taking his first solo steps in country music after a successful career with the SteelDrivers. His debut single is 'What Are You Listening To,' a sweet love song that stands apart from any on the radio. Over the next few days he'll need all of his fans -- old and new -- to come together and vote to top a red hot Lewis.

Listen to clips of both Lewis' and Stapleton's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Wednesday.

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour online. If a song wins five Showdowns in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
