Craig Morgan vs. Eric Church – The Showdown
Craig Morgan is on a roll, and his fans are standing up for his new song ‘Wake Up Lovin’ You’ in a big way. The big country ballad won a third straight Showdown over the weekend, easily topping ‘Doin’ It Right,’ the latest from Rodney Atkins. To move one step closer to the Hall of Fame, the track from ‘The Journey (Livin’ Hits)’ will need to best a CMA Male Vocalist of the Year nominee.
Eric Church is expected to release a new album in 2014. He’s just debuted the first single, and fans are loving it. ‘The Outsiders’ is a foot-stomping country rock song that’s easy to believe in. It’s an anthem for the left-of-center sound the North Carolina singer has always stood by. He’s proud to do things his way.
