The Showdown: High Valley vs. Keith Urban

High Valley have managed another decisive Showdown victory, but before they can take a shot at the Hall of Fame, they’ll have to get by one of the biggest superstars in the country format today.

The sibling duo are on a winning streak with their new single, “Make You Mine,” which is a guitar and banjo-driven, infectiously fun track that makes you want to sing along the second you hear it. They’ve just posted another win over the Brothers Osborne, but now they’re up against the new single from Keith Urban.

Urban has just released “Wasted Time,” which comes from his upcoming Ripcord album. The song is another big, bold step in a progressive direction for the superstar, but he leavens the pop arrangement with just enough banjo texturing to keep it from teetering too far over the edge of the country format.

Listen to clips of both High Valley and Urban’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.
