The Showdown: Brad Paisley vs. Maddie and Tae
Congratulations to Austin Webb, who has entered the Hall of Fame after winning five straight Showdowns with his latest single, 'All Country on You.' Now we start fresh with a battle between Brad Paisley and Maddie + Tae.
Paisley's new single, 'Crushin' It,' is the latest in a line of fun songs geared toward his live show. It's the follow-up to his most recent No. 1 hit, 'Perfect Storm,' and the namesake of his upcoming summer tour.
M+T's sophomore single, 'Fly,' is a bluegrass-tinged inspirational track that demonstrates their groundbreaking debut, 'Girl in a Country Song,' wasn't just a fluke. The song shows a completely different side of their songwriting talents, but still keeps the emphasis on their signature harmonies. Will they be able to handle Paisley, or will he move on to another Showdown round?

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.
