Chris Janson vs. Jana Kramer – The Showdown
Country newcomer Chris Janson shocked readers and listeners on Taste of Country Nights radio by topping Lady Antebellum and their new song ‘Downtown’ on Friday. His rowdy rehabbed bad boy anthem ‘Better I Don’t’ was a big hit with fans, and he used Facebook to get the word out. The result: a narrow win over the superstar trio.
Today Janson will face the latest from actress-turned-country singer Jana Kramer. ‘Whiskey’ once again finds the songstress looking back at a relationship that went wrong. This time she’s angry with herself for letting things get so heated, when the signs where there that her love was trouble. Which song do you prefer?

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, and again by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days 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.
