Chris Young vs. Lauren Alaina – The Showdown
Chris Young needs just one more win to put his newest single ‘Aw Naw’ into the Showdown Hall of Fame. After topping ‘Goodbye Town’ by Lady Antebellum earlier this week, he finds himself up against the brand new single from Lauren Alaina. If history is any indicator, Young and his fans have their work cut out for them this weekend.
‘Barefoot and Buckwild’ is a sassy pop-country cut from the one-time ‘American Idol‘ singer. Alaina performed the first single from her upcoming album on the show that made her famous Thursday night, so maybe she has an advantage, but Young’s fans haven’t found an advantage they couldn’t overcome yet.

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.
