Gloriana vs. Ronnie Dunn – The Showdown
Congratulations to Lauren Alaina! Her new song ‘Georgia Peaches’ is a Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame inductee after winning for four straight weeks. The 17-year-old’s hit knocked off ‘Even if It Breaks Your Heart by Eli Young Band last week, after toppling songs by Keith Urban, Alan Jackson and Lee Brice in previous weeks. This means there are two new competitors facing off this week.
Gloriana‘s ‘(Kissed You) Good Night’ is the group’s first release as a trio. The innocent ballad strikes a chord with anyone who’s ever lingered around, nervously waiting for that first kiss. The group captures the essence of that should-I-or-shouldn’t-I moment, while showing off their always impressive harmonizing capabilities.
Ronnie Dunn‘s ‘Let the Cowboy Rock’ is the third single from his self-titled solo album. This uptempo rocker is sure to please fans who prefer his more fun fare as a member of Brooks and Dunn. It’s the sad story of a cowboy trying to drown his sorrows in a drink, yet somehow Dunn will have people dancing in the car every time this song comes on the radio.
Listen to both songs, decide which you like better and vote. This week’s Showdown ends on Feb. 12 at 11:59PM ET, so be sure to tell your Gloriana or Ronnie Dunn-loving friends to hit the polls before it’s too late.
