Darius Rucker vs. Gloriana – The Showdown
Yesterday’s Showdown was shaping up to be one of the closest ever, but Darius Rucker‘s fans came on like a hurricane and pushed his new song ‘True Believers’ to round two in overwhelming fashion. That means Taylor Swift‘s new song ‘Begin Again’ goes back to the bin, and the new hit from Gloriana steps up to take on Rucker’s ballad today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
The trio’s new single is ‘Can’t Shake You.’ The heartbreaking ballad was topped in a Showdown last month, but fan and reader response to the song made it clear they deserved another shot to reach the next round. All three singers show of their individual voices while melting into one harmony during parts of this song from ‘A Thousand Miles Left Behind.’

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, and as much as you want by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days 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.
