Hottest Country Star of 2013 Finals Feature On-Fire Superstar and Rising Star
One 2013 Hottest Country Star finalist led his Semi-Finals matchup from start to finish. The other led for less than two hours. But it doesn't matter how they got here. The battle to decide who had the best year in country music is now down to two after four exciting weeks of fan voting.
Luke Bryan beat Blake Shelton last round, taking 53 percent of the vote. 'The Voice' coach and his fans made it interesting down the stretch, closing a gap that once stood at 20 percent in the final two days. Having one of the hottest songs in country music certainly helped Bryan reach the finals. 'Drink a Beer' is also on the verge of being retired in the ToC Showdown.
Danielle Bradbery was so far behind Carrie Underwood last week that the superstar wouldn't have been able to spot her in the rearview mirror. But slowly, 'The Voice' winner's fans started chipping away at the lead. On Sunday, they flooded the polls, passing Underwood around 10PM ET on the way to a 52 to 48 percent victory.
Now it's time for you to decide the ultimate winner. Bryan and Bradbery won their brackets and will face off through Friday night (Nov. 22) at 11:59PM ET. Vote up to once every hour until then. The Hottest Country Star of 2013 will be officially named on Monday, Nov. 25.
