George Strait vs. the Cadillac Three – The Showdown
George Strait's new single 'I Got a Car' is going for a third straight Showdown win this weekend. The fun love song took care of 'Callin' Me When I'm Lonely' by Sheryl Crow earlier this week, moving it into a new round. Strait's fans will be up against one of the hottest new artists and young songwriters in Nashville.
The Cadillac Three's debut single is 'The South.' Jaren Johnston and company have plenty of friends in the music industry -- in fact, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line and Mike Eli of the Eli Young Band join him the trio on this rock cut. Can the feisty newcomers knock off the CMA Entertainer of the Year? It may be a tough battle, but David has certainly beaten Goliath before.
