The Showdown: Home Free vs. Maddie & Tae
Home Free fans made a big impression during the vocal group's first ever Showdown earlier this week. The band's collaboration with the Oak Ridge Boys stormed to an easy victory over Little Big Town. Today, and this weekend, "Elvira" will face a hot country duo with their own blend of sweet harmonies.
"Shut Up and Fish" is the third single from Maddie & Tae's Start Here album, and it's arguably their catchiest yet. The relatable come-on song finds the girls deflecting advances from a guy who doesn't really want to catch bass on the boat. In the end he ends up with a wet pair of salmon shorts, and the duo's fans end up with a big laugh.
Listen to clips of both Home Free’s and Maddie & Tae’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Monday 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 Monday.

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.
