George Strait vs. Sheryl Crow – The Showdown

George Strait‘s fans knocked Brad Paisley out of the Showdown competition earlier this week. His new song ‘I Got a Car’ took almost 75 percent of the vote, making for an easy win over ‘The Mona Lisa.’ His competition today and Thursday is fresh off a wonderful performance at the ACAs in Las Vegas, so those same voters will need to double down on their efforts. 

Sheryl Crow performed ‘Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely’ with Darius Rucker during Tuesday night’s Fox broadcast, and many called it a highlight performance of the night. The sad ballad is one of the best from her new ‘Feels Like Home’ album. This is Crow’s second shot on the Showdown after losing to Jerrod Niemann earlier this year. Her fans put up a good fight then, however, proving she’s deserving of a second chance.

Listen to clips of both Strait and Crow’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday 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 Friday.

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.
