Chris Young vs. Reba McEntire – The Showdown
Chris Young is anything but lonely. The singer will kick off the week on a high after his huge fanbase brought him a win in a Showdown battle against Kristian Bush over the weekend, and with a little help, he may keep his stride as he takes on the legendary Reba McEntire.
‘Lonely Eyes’ is the kind of croon Young is known for, and it’s because he does it well. The song — about a woman he’s hoping to get close with — is one fans were hoping he’d release as a single, because they can’t stop singing it. How does it stand up to McEntire’s unique ‘Pray for Peace,’ a repetitive song lyrically, but one that’s emotionally as deep as the ocean? That’s up to you.

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.
