Gretchen Wilson vs. J. Michael Harter – The Showdown
The Showdown starts with a clean slate today, as Easton Corbin's 'Baby Be My Love Song' enters the Hall of Fame after winning its fifth straight victory. Now Gretchen Wilson is set to square off against J. Michael Harter.
Wilson's new single is a live version of 'Chariot,' from her new live album 'STILL Here for the Party,' which celebrates the tenth anniversary of her landmark debut. The track features the singer's daughter, Grace, in the middle section rap and on backing vocals.
J. Michael Harter is a newcomer as a solo act, but he's familiar to country fans from his days with the sibling act the Harters. He brings the party with his debut solo single, 'Holy Cowgirl,' which features heavy guitars and a fun, light-hearted and danceable vibe.
