The newest Showdown comes with plenty of emotion. Two new challengers will square off today and Tuesday after Colt Ford's 'Drivin' Around Song' gets retired to the Showdown Hall of Fame. Superstars Brad Paisley and Randy Travis will square off in this battle of ballads. 

Paisley's 'I Can't Change the World' is a lyrically simple, but beautifully complex love song that finds the singer at his vocal best. He's up against Travis, and his new recording called 'Tonight I'm Playing Possum.' The song is about the late George Jones, so this singer will no doubt have fans of "Ol' No Show" in his corner as he takes on Paisley.

Listen to clips of both the Paisley and Travis' 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.

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.
