Two country newcomers working on their first big hits square off in this round, as hot songs battle to determine the Best Song of Summer 2015. One made history, while the other proves you can find great country music north of Ohio.

Kelsea Ballerini's "Love Me Like You Mean It" is one of the most-played songs of 2015. The upbeat love song is as catchy as a sunburn, but a lot more fun. After becoming the first female in over two years to top the Billboard Country Airplay chart, this 21-year-old has her sights set on bigger goals.

The Best Song of Summer title would also look nice on Frankie Ballard's mantle. After back-to-back No. 1 hits, Ballard has what could be the lyric of the summer in "How am I ever gonna get to be old and wise / If I ain't ever young and crazy." He'll need his fans to agree if he's to move past Ballerini's faithful.

Fans can vote once every hour until this poll closes at 11:59PM CT on July 21, 2015. The winner will move on to face either Kenny Chesney or Miranda Lambert. The overall Best Song of Summer 2015 winner will be named on August 12, after four rounds of voting and elimination.
