Charlie Worsham vs. Brantley Gilbert – The Showdown
Charlie Worsham and his fans have won two straight Showdown song battles, but ‘Want Me To’ will face its toughest competition yet on Wednesday and Thursday. The uptempo love song knocked off Austin Webb‘s powerful ballad ‘Slip on By’ earlier this week. Up next: the brand new single from Brantley Gilbert.
‘Bottoms Up’ was released just before Christmas alongside a very entertaining music video that portrays the singer as a prohibition-era mobster. His song is very contemporary however, and it’s also the first taste fans have had of new music expected in 2014. Will Gilbert’s fans (or as he calls them, friends) be able to take down a two-time champ?
Listen to clips of both Worsham and Gilbert’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Friday.

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour online. If a song wins five Showdowns in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
