The song may be called ‘Invisible,’ but Hunter Hayes‘ fans are anything but. Hayniacs have taken the singer’s new single to the winner’s circle twice in a row, most recently by thumping the latest from Easton Corbin. Texas foursome the Eli Young Band is up next in the Louisiana native’s quest to get to the Showdown Hall of Fame. 

‘Dust’ is the second second released from the group’s upcoming ’10,000 Towns’ album. Lead singer Mike Eli sings of a woman ready to put a difficult past behind her. She sets out to find a new home and to chase new dreams. Can Eli Young Band’s fans step up to the challenge of taking down one of the hottest songs in country music?

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.
