Brantley Gilbert vs. Jake Owen – The Showdown

Brantley Gilbert scored an upset over two-time champion Luke Bryan last week. By a surprising 2-to-1 margin, Gilbert’s new song ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ topped Bryan’s hit ‘I Don’t Want This Night to End.’ Next up, the soft-spoken Georgia born singer will take on the man who was tapped as an opener for Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw‘s summer tour in 2012.

Jake Owen scored a No. 1 hit with the title track from his new album ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night,’ and the follow-up is on pace to make it two in a row. The spicy video for ‘Alone With You’ certainly won’t hurt his chances of becoming a Taste of Country Showdown champion. Listen to both songs and then decide which is better.

The song with the most votes by 11:59PM on Christmas night (Dec. 25) will move on to face a new challenger. Be sure to let all your Brantley Gilbert or Jake Owen-loving friends know that their favorite singer needs their help to win!
