Hunter Hayes vs. Josh Thompson – The Showdown
Hunter Hayes has never put a song in the Showdown Hall of Fame, but if his new single 'Invisible' can get past Josh Thompson's latest, he'll gain entry. The powerful ballad has won four straight song battles, setting up this matchup with 'Cold Beer With Your Name on It.'
Hayes' anti-bullying song has sparked a movement, while Thompson's cut just hopes to spark a good time. The debut single from his just announced 'Turn It Up' album (April 1) is a laid-back love song that keeps the spirit of other tracks from this 'Beer on the Table' hitmaker. Thompson may be country music's ultimate blue collar songwriter.
