Blake Shelton vs. Bush Hawg – The Showdown

Bush Hawg has built a dedicated fanbase through relentless touring, and now that they’ve signed a record deal, they’ve released ‘Crushin’.’ The love song is an introduction for most country music fans, but the group will need their loyalists to step up and challenge Shelton’s hit song.
