Eric Paslay vs. Lady Antebellum – The Showdown
Carrie Underwood enters the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame this week after her new song 'Something in the Water' bested five challengers. Will one of these two great artists follow a similar path? Eric Paslay's 'She Don't Love You' is facing Lady Antebellum's 'Freestyle' in this Showdown song battle.
And the songs couldn't be more different. Paslay brings pain to the surface for those who've experienced heartache in their romantic lives -- and who hasn't? The song is powerful, and the singer-songwriter does emotion (and country, for that matter) well.
On the flip side is Lady A's 'Freestyle,' a funky mix of nostalgia and fun that's unlike anything on country radio these days. The hit bends pop, and it lends to a lighter tone, which some fans may be looking for on a dreary fall Monday. We'll see!
Listen to clips of both Paslay and Lady A's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Wednesday.

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.
