Danielle Bradbery vs. George Strait – The Showdown
How’s this for a test for country newcomer Danielle Bradbery? After topping Aaron Lewis‘ ‘Granddaddy’s Gun’ by a wide margin earlier this week, ‘The Voice’ winner’s debut single will face off against a brilliant new track by George Strait. Fans of ‘The Heart of Dixie’ stepped up in a big way once already. They’ll need to keep the momentum to top the King.
‘I Believe’ is a song that will stick with you days after a first listen. It’s a powerful ballad inspired by the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. Through these types of events, the singer manages to keep his faith — in fact, it’s as if he’s more dedicated now than ever before.

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.
