It's time to decide who has the best fans in country music. Introducing the 2014 Taste of Country Fan Football League!

Country fans from two very different points of view will square off in this Round 1 battle. Blake Shelton is as country as the grass is green, while Taylor Swift straddled the line between pop and country before recently turning to pop music full time ... at least for her upcoming album. Her country fans still represent, however, so Shelton should have his hands full if he's hoping to keep mud out of his mullet. We expect this matchup to go to the very end.

Fans of 16 of the biggest artists in country music have been chosen based on how loud each group cheers for their team. Included are some of the most famous stars, but also newcomers that just will not be denied, despite having had less time to build a loyal following.

Round 1 will end at 11:59PM ET on September 14. The 16 artists are split into two divisions. On Thursday, the Country Division was revealed. Today it’s the Western Division. The winner of this Round 1 matchup will face either Scotty McCreery's Garner Trojans or Kellie Pickler's Carolina Spitfire.
