The Showdown: Drake White vs. Granger Smith
White's new single, "It Feels Good," had his fans turning out in droves to vote, earning more than 75 percent of the overall vote over Kramer's latest. The song is an uptempo and enormously fun track that is perfectly timed for the coming of summer and good times with friends.
Smith put his name on the map in Texas and then headed out on the road, earning himself notoriety in sold out clubs across the U.S. as an indie artist. He's reaching beyond those borders with his new single, "Backroad Song." The track teams him with Nashville super-producer Frank Rogers, who has helmed a number of successful albums from Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker. "Backroad Song" pairs vivid lyrical imagery with a strong groove for a track that might prove Smith's radio breakthrough. But will it be enough to get past White and move on to another Showdown round?
