Hank Williams, Jr. vs. Lady Antebellum – The Showdown
With one more win, Hank Williams, Jr. will be able to rest easy in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame. Over the weekend, ‘I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink’ took over 90 percent of the vote — again — to cruise to a Showdown win. The duet with Merle Haggard crushed Florida Georgia Line and their new song ‘Stay.’
Today, it takes on a single from another red hot group. Lady Antebellum has released ‘Compass’ as a new single to be featured on the deluxe version of their latest album ‘Golden.’ That project hits stores on Nov. 12. The song is just getting started at radio, so the Showdown will be an early bellwether test for its future.

You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday 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 Wednesday.

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.
