Danielle Bradbery‘s debut single has veen retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame, and now her coach on ‘The Voice’ steps up for his chance. After topping newcomer Dakota Bradley last weekend, ‘The Heart of Dixie’ moves aside for two new challengers to face off. Today and Tuesday it’s Blake Shelton versus Darius Rucker

Shelton’s new single ‘Mine Would Be You’ is among his finest ballads. What begins as a love song takes a tragic twist at the end. It’s up against ‘Radio,’ the uptempo new song from Rucker. This track from ‘True Believers’ will leave you dancing, and like so many of the singer’s hits, it’s a showcase for his powerful voice.

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.
