The Showdown: Cam vs. Ashley Clark
Cam is a singer-songwriter who is taking a very unique path with her new single, "Burning House." The powerfully emotional track is an unusual choice for a new single going into summer, which may help it stand out at country radio with its delicate arrangement, pensive lyric and top-notch vocal performance.
Ashley Clark is already known to some fans from Clark Brothers, winners of The Next Great American Band, who changed their name to Sons of Sylvia and had a run in country music. He's back now with a solo single titled "Greyhound," which is an interesting twist on a song about lost love, with the narrator hoping that he can somehow still get back with his former flame, even if he has to take a plane, train or bus to do it. Clark's standout vocal performance gives the track a real advantage, but will it be enough for fans to vote him on? Or will Cam make the next Showdown round?
