Colt Ford vs. Frankie Ballard – The Showdown
Colt Ford and Jason Aldean are proving to be an unstoppable duo. ‘Drivin’ Around Song’ cruised to a second straight Showdown win over the weekend, doubling up the new single by Jake Owen. Today and Tuesday, Ford and Aldean will tag team country newcomer Frankie Ballard.
Ballard’s new single is called ‘Helluva Life.’ It’s an easy, mid-tempo lyric about appreciating the simple joys you come across daily. It’s already charted, and will need to keep that momentum to stand a chance against ‘Drivin’ Around Song.’ Ballard has built a loyal fanbase over the last few years, and he’ll need votes from all of them.
