The Showdown: Cole Swindell vs. Joe Nichols
Cole Swindell's' new song, "Middle of a Memory," is in the middle of a winning streak. He's just pulled out a hard-fought victory over Brad Paisley's new duet with Demi Lovato, and will now face a challenge from Joe Nichols.
"Middle of a Memory" is the second single from Swindell's hit album You Should Be Here, and it's a finely-crafted ballad that seems to be continuing a hot streak that has seen him score several No. 1 hits.
Nichols' "Undone" is a sexy song that is a perfect vehicle for his one-of-a-kind voice, and it's a great marriage of his traditional vocal stylings with some more contemporary elements. Nichols has a huge amount of fan support ... will it be enough to get him past Swindell?
