Hank Williams, Jr. vs. Little Big Town – The Showdown
Hank Williams Jr.’s fans were relentless in a win over Jennifer Nettles last weekend. ‘I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink,’ Williams’ new collaboration with Merle Haggard, took 85 percent of the vote to move on to a new round of this song battle. The legend will need another big effort to take down Little Big Town, a group as hot as any in country music.
‘Sober’ is the new single from ‘Tornado.’ It’s the second straight ballad LBT has released to radio, but this one sets a much different tone. The Kimberly Schlapman-led vocals tell a sweet love story reminiscent of the quartet’s early work. Is their performance strong enough to convince fans they have the better song?
