The Showdown: Danielle Bradbery vs. Canaan Smith
Bradbery's latest single is "Friend Zone," which displays a sassy side to her music as she puts a boy in his place for not calling her on time. The pop-country track is the first we've heard of Bradbery's upcoming sophomore album, and so far fans are loving it.
Smith's new release is "Hole in a Bottle," which is a straight-up drinking song with a clever play on its main theme. It's the follow-up to his No. 1 hit, "Love You Like That," and it's just different enough to hold fans' attention, but not so different that it will confuse fans who loved his previous effort. Will he be able to get past Bradbery?

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.
