The Showdown: Cam vs. A Thousand Horses
Cam is a relative country newcomer, and she's making waves with her new single, "Burning House," which is a powerfully emotional ballad that features a standout vocal performance. It's a very individualistic choice for a summer song, showing that this young artist already knows exactly show she is.
A Thousand Horses continue to establish their own unique identity in country music with "(This Ain't No) Drink Dial," a mid-tempo track that serves as a showcase for Michael Hobby's gritty vocal style and the amalgam of country and southern rock that is the group's signature. These two songs couldn't be more different, but only one of them is going to move on to the next round of the Showdown.
