Today’s Showdown song battle pits one of country’s brightest stars against the song everyone is talking about. Hunter Hayes‘ new single ‘Tattoo’ will battle Maddie & Tae‘s ‘Girl in a Country Song’ after Keith Urban‘s hit is retired for winning five strait Showdowns.

‘Tattoo’ is Hayes’ second single from ‘Storyline,’ and this is the track’s second run on the Showdown — the first time around he was topped by David Nail‘s ‘Kiss You Tonight.’ Newcomers Maddie and Tae have released ‘Girl in a Country Song,’ a cutting track that takes on “bro-country.” It’s a song you have to hear to believe.

Listen to clips of both Hayes and Maddie and Tae’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday 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 Wednesday.

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.
