Brantley Gilbert‘s song ‘Kick It in the Sticks’ has topped singles from seasoned country veterans, and now it’ll need to best a newcomer’s newest. The Georgia singer’s fans were too much for fans of Billy Ray Cyrus‘ new single on Friday and Friday night on Taste of Country Nights radio. ‘Kick It …’ goes against one of the sexiest songs of the summer on Monday.

Katie Armiger is a familiar name after five years of releasing country singles. While she hasn’t landed a big hit yet, it’s not due to lack of talent. Her new song ‘Better in a Black Dress’ introduces the one-time teen singer as a grown woman with devilish thoughts on her mind.

Listen to clips of both Gilbert’s and Armiger’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour online, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. Hear the full versions of the songs tonight after 10PM on Taste of Country Nights. Help your favorite song win by placing additional votes at (888) 678-9995. Call as many times as you like! You can listen to the show online through any of the 33 radio stations that carry it. Voting will end tonight at 10:40PM CT.
