Drake White vs. Jason Aldean – The Showdown
It wasn’t just country fans who stepped up to help Drake White‘s new single ‘The Simple Life’ win its second straight Showdown song battle. The new song got a push from Lynyrd Skynyrd on Twitter, allowing the feel-good cut to breeze by ‘Round Here’ from Florida Georgia Line. For the second straight Showdown, White took over 75 percent of the vote!
Today, his opponent is Jason Aldean and the title track from the ‘Night Train’ album. Aldean’s new single is a ballad that tells the story of two lovers who find peace watching a slow freight train roll by. To win, they’ll need to outpace the bullet train that is Drake White.

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.
