The Showdown: Dierks Bentley vs. Steven Tyler
Dierks Bentley's lead single from an upcoming album made a big impression over the weekend. "Somewhere on a Beach" topped a fast-rising ballad from Cole Swindell. "You Should Be Here" had won two straight Showdowns before falling to Bentley's nation of fans.
The singer and upcoming ACM Awards co-host will take on a classic rock legend today and Tuesday. "Red, White & You" is the followup to Steven Tyler's debut single "Love Is Your Name." This mid-tempo love song is built for radio, but fans ultimately will decide if it's a hit or not. Start here, by voting for Tyler or Bentley in this song battle.

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.
