Brad Paisley vs. George Strait – The Showdown
Two country legends will square off in the latest Taste of Country Showdown song battle. Sara Evans‘ new song ‘Slow Me Down’ won for a fifth straight time over the weekend, meaning she gets retired to the Hall of Fame! Could Brad Paisley or George Strait be the next to join her?
Neither singer has a song in the HoF, but both have new releases that are worthy. Paisley has released ‘The Mona Lisa’ as the latest single from his ‘Wheelhouse’ album. It’s a creative love song that compares the good fortunes of loving a woman to being the frame that holds the famous piece of art. Strait’s new one is also a love song. ‘I Got a Car’ is a clever and heartwarming mid-tempo storyteller that’s classic King.
Listen to clips of both Paisley and Strait’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.
