Eli Young Band vs. Pat Green – Texas Red Dirt Rumble
Congratulations to Eli Young Band! The Texas foursome stopped Cody Canada and the Departed‘s winning streak in the Taste of Country Texas Red Dirt Rumble. ‘Even if It Breaks Your Heart’ will move on to face a new challenger this week, a song from another Texan with major label experience.
Pat Green‘s new song ‘All Just to Get to You’ is from his ‘Songs We Wish We’d Written II’ album, in stores on May 8. Green injects rock n’ roll into this Joe Ely cut. The song was just released last week, but is off to a good start, having gotten at least one positive review early on.
The Eli Young Band boys are using a song that seems pulled from the pages of their scrapbook to get back to the top of the country music charts. ‘Even if It Breaks Your Heart’ is an inspiring story about overcoming all obstacles to chase a dream. It’s already a Top 30 hit, moving up the charts faster than their No. 1 hit ‘Crazy Girl.’
Listen to both songs and decide which you prefer. Vote for one in the poll below, and be sure to check back next Thursday to see how your favorite did. The winner will move on to face a new Texan next week.
