Carrie Underwood vs. Blake Shelton – The Showdown
Two weeks ago, Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Good Girl’ took down Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Over You’ to win the Taste of Country Showdown championship belt. But this week, Underwood will have to get through the other half of country music’s favorite couple to continue her march toward the Showdown Hall of Fame. Blake Shelton‘s ‘Drink on It’ will battle the blonde country superstar for fan votes.
Another win for ‘Good Girl’ would be her third (the song topped Lady Antebellum‘s ‘Dancin’ Away With My Heart’ last week), meaning she’d need just one more to earn a spot in the Hall of Fame. The singer performed the song from her upcoming album ‘Blown Away’ on the ACM Awards last week. It’s a sassy, uptempo country rocker with a message for women being dogged by a man who’s no good.
Shelton’s newest song is a easy-going country swinger about a guy trying to convince a pretty girl to pay him attention. There’s no official music video for the Top 5 hit from ‘Red River Blue,’ but the singer did release official audio with images of a pretty girl sipping a drink at a bar, waiting for Mr. Right to show up.
Listen to both songs and decide which one you think is more deserving of the Showdown crown. You can only vote once, and all votes must be in by April 15, 2012 at 11:59PM ET.

Showdown Rules: The artist and song with the most votes wins, and winner goes on to face next week’s challenger. If an artist wins four weeks in a row, he or she will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete.
