Brantley Gilbert vs. Dolly Parton – The Showdown

Brantley Gilbert is not just winning the recent Taste of Country Showdowns, he’s laying the smack down on all challengers. Last week, his new song ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ topped Dierks Bentley‘s ‘Home’ by more than a 3-to-1 margin. For the second week in a row, he’s set the record for largest margin of victory. One more win and the song will join Scotty McCreery‘s ‘The Trouble With Girls’ as the only retired songs in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.

‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ is hardly a fighting song. The ballad — from Gilbert’s ‘Halfway to Heaven’ album — tells the story of a guy trying to get over a girl. Not just any girl — he’s trying to get past the girl, the one he thinks he’s meant to be with. But his fans will have to turn up at the polls to vote one more time if Gilbert hopes to get past the queen of country music.

Dolly Parton‘s ‘The Sacrifice’ tells the story of everything she gave up for a career in country music. Is there anyone who’s worked harder to achieve and hold onto superstardom? ‘The Sacrifice’ is an inspiring song with a message that very few will turned off by.

Listen to both songs and vote for your favorite by Jan. 8 at 11:59PM ET. If Parton wins, she’ll move on to face a new challenger. If Gilbert wins for a fourth week in a row, two new songs will battle it out next week.
