The Showdown: Danielle Bradbery vs. Alabama
Danielle Bradbery is one of the hottest up-and-coming talents in country music, but she's about to face a tough Showdown challenge from the most legendary group in country music history.
Bradbery co-wrote her new single, "Friend Zone," taking a sassy new lyrical direction that's really been connecting with her fans. She's just won her fourth straight Showdown in a landslide, and will compete for the Hall of Fame today and over the weekend against the new single from Alabama.
The country legends have updated their sound a bit, but they don't depart too far from the script for "Wasn't Through Lovin' You Yet," the first single from their forthcoming album. Led by Randy Owen's vocal and topped off by the group's signature harmonies, the song feels like coming home to your hometown after a long period away and finding that it's just as good as you remember it. Will Alabama finally break Bradbery's streak, or is she headed for the Hall of Fame?
Listen to clips of both Bradbery and Alabama's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Monday 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 Monday.

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.
