The Showdown: Danielle Bradbery vs. Zac Brown Band
Bradbery's new song is the first we've heard from her forthcoming sophomore album, and it's a step in a different direction, with a little more sass as the singer co-wrote the new track. Her fans have turned out to vote with massive support so far, but Zac Brown Band also have an intensely loyal voting block.
ZBB's new single, "Beautiful Drug," throws a pretty hard curveball for fans of the group's more organic musical arrangements. The new track sees the musicians putting aside their acoustic instruments in favor of electronic effects and sounds that draw heavily from EDM for a song unlike anything else they've ever offered. Two strong contenders, two very different songs — but only one can go on to another Showdown round.

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.
