The Showdown: Carrie Underwood vs. Jennifer Nettles
Underwood's new single, "Heartbeat," is very personal to her. The superstar says she was thinking about her husband when she recorded the track, which is the latest single from her new album, Storyteller.
Nettles is returning to one of her strongest suits with "Unlove You," an emotional new ballad that's the first we've heard of her upcoming second solo album. The Sugarland singer is going less experimental with the new track, giving Sugarland fans more of the style they have come to expect from her and offering up a tremendously satisfying performance in the process.
