George Strait vs. LeAnn Rimes – The Showdown
Two votes! That’s all that separated the winner and loser after yesterday’s Showdown was finished. Easton Corbin‘s new song ‘All over the Road’ benefitted from a late push on Facebook, but that was not enough to take down the King. George Strait‘s ‘Give It All We Got Tonight’ will move on to a new round today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
Strait’s song will go up against a very different type of single on Wednesday. LeAnn Rimes has released ‘Borrowed,’ an autobiographical tune from her upcoming ‘Spitfire’ album. The song — about fighting for a man who’s taken — is a beautiful ballad, full of genuine passion. She’ll need just a little more support from her fans than Corbin got from his to take down Strait’s single.
Listen to clips of both Strait’s and Rimes’ songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour online, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins.

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, and as much as you want by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days 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.
