George Strait vs. Chris Young – The Showdown
Two traditional country powerhouses will square off in this Showdown song battle. The King, George Strait, is just one win away from having his song retired to the Hall of Fame. Chris Young is a newcomer by comparison, but one with a very active fanbase.
Those fans will need to step up in a big way if ‘Who I Am With You’ is going to top Strait’s ‘I Got a Car.’ The new ballad from Young’s ‘A.M.’ album is a soaring love song. Young pours his heart out singing about being the best he can be when he’s alongside his soul mate. Can his song do something four songs have failed to do before him and top George Strait?
