Eric Church vs. Kenny Chesney – The Showdown

For the second straight time, a song has been knocked from the Taste of Country Showdown when it was needing just one more win to reach of the Hall of Fame. Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Good Girl’ fell to ‘Springsteen’ by Eric Church last week. Just three weeks earlier, it was Underwood who kept Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Over You’ from becoming just the fourth song to be enshrined in the virtual hall.

‘Springsteen’ won by a healthy margin, but the North Carolina born-and-raised singer’s fans may have to double down to knock off this week’s competitor. In wrestling, they call this a handicap match. Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw‘s ‘Feel Like a Rock Star’ is one of the hottest songs in country music right now, and with the recent release of the music video, fans are excited to hear the song over and over again. It’s the first single from Chesney’s ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ album, due out on June 19.

‘Chief’ is Church’s ridiculously successful break-out album, having already produced his first No. 1 hit, and now ‘Springsteen’ — a song that is becoming his biggest sales hit to date. The mid-tempo, nostalgic tribute to the rock singer of the same name is one his biggest fans keep on repeat. They’ll need to keep voting this week to inch the singer toward the halfway mark of the four winning weeks needed to reach the Hall of Fame.

Listen to both songs and vote. You can only vote one time, but you’re encouraged to share the Showdown with all of your country music loving friends so they can vote, too. A winner will be decided after the Showdown closes on April 29 at 11:59PM ET.
