Brantley Gilbert vs. Dierks Bentley – The Showdown
Brantley Gilbert scored the biggest Showdown victory ever last week. His new song 'You Don't Know Her Like I Do' topped Jake Owen's 'Alone With You' by a 3-to-1 margin, meaning he's halfway to having his song retired in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
Gilbert's most recent release from 'Halfway To Heaven' is one fans are quickly learning to sing back to him during his energetic live shows. Much like his recent No. 1 hit, 'Country Must Be Country Wide,' it's a song that comes from personal experience: a relationship gone wrong.
Dierks Bentley's 'Home' is this week's challenger. The vivid, prideful ballad also reveals a bit of Bentley's personality. It's unlike anything he's ever released to radio, but it's quickly becoming a big hit. The song is the title track of the singer's new album, scheduled to be in stores on Feb. 7.

Showdown Rules: The artist and song with the most votes wins, and winner goes on to face next week’s challenger. If an artist wins four weeks in a row, he or she will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. We hear they’ve got a great buffet.
