Chris Janson vs. Rascal Flatts – The Showdown
Chris Janson, a country newcomer from Missouri, is tearing through Showdown competition. His new song ‘Better I Don’t’ topped Jana Kramer‘s latest single yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. The song battle was decided by just seven votes! Will today’s challenger find those votes and more in an effort to move the country rock song from the winners circle?
Rascal Flatts have released the title track from their new album as the next single, and it’s already getting a good response from radio. ‘Changed’ is a song of redemption. In a way, ‘Better I Don’t’ is as well, but they are very different types of songs, sure to attract a very different base of voters.
Listen to clips of both Janson’s and Rascal Flatts’ songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour online, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. Hear the full versions of the songs tonight after 10PM on Taste of Country Nights. Help your favorite song win by placing additional votes at (888) 678-9995. You can listen to the show online through any of the 41 radio stations that carry it. Voting will end tonight at 10:40PM CT.

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.
