In last week’s Taste of Country Texas Red Dirt Rumble, the Casey Donahew Band picked a big fight, going up against Eli Young Band‘s ‘Crazy Girl’ and winning with a wide margin: 60.76% to EYB’s 39%. This week, Donahew and his boys will face off again, this time against Wade Bowen‘s current hit ‘Saturday Night,’ which is No. 5 on the Texas charts.

CDB’s ‘Double-Wide Dream’ is a happy song that celebrates love between two rednecks: a trailer park king and his braless mobile home mama, who has unreal dippin’ skills and a knack for wearing too-small clothes.

On the other hand, Bowen is all alone. In his song ‘Saturday Night,’ he tells the story of the realization that he’s by his lonesome on a prime date night, which will surely lead to an even lonelier Sunday morning. Bowen can’t grasp why everyone loves Saturday nights out so much, what with the stale smoke smell, beer hangover and the inevitable — that you’ll find regret in bed beside to you the next morning.

While Donahew is singing the praises of double-wide living, Bowen rebels against the place where loud bands overwhelm and drunk girls irritate, and the sight of a couple in love is almost too much to take. Both are tunes that are easy to relate to, depending on your circumstance, but which Red Dirt hit is your favorite? Check out the reigning champ ‘Double-Wide Dream’ and ‘Saturday Night’ below to see which is more up your alley. Then, share the link with your friends so they can vote, too.

You’ve got until Midnight CT on Wednesday, Dec. 7 to decide whether the Casey Donahew Band will move on or if Wade Bowen will win over lonely hearts. After the winner of this week’s Rumble is chosen, a new match will start up, pitting the winner against a brand-new challenger.
