Chris Young‘s new single with Cassadee Pope hasn’t even “officially” been released yet, but it’s already a two-time Showdown winner. The mid-tempo song about two lovers wondering why they’re not together any longer is a powerful vocal statement. It’s found few obstacles on its way to winning so far.

“Think of You” is the second single from Young’s I’m Comin’ Over album and arguably the project’s signature track. It’ll go against another beautiful love song today and Tuesday. Toby Keith‘s “Beautiful Stranger” is his most emotional song on 35 MPH Town, an album released last fall.

Listen to clips of both Young and Keith’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday 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 Wednesday.

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.
