Jake Owen vs. Jerrod Niemann – The Showdown
‘Girl in a Country Song’ is officially in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame! After busting past several big singles all week, knocking them down each time, Maddie and Tae‘s debut settles among stars. Now, it’s time for Jake Owen and Jerrod Niemann to duke it out.
Owen’s brand new single ‘What We Ain’t Got’ is a slow, sad, heart-tugging country tune with profound lyrics about the grass always being greener and a girl he let slip through his fingers. Meanwhile, Niemann’s got his eye on the lady getting his buzz going, and things seem to be going a little better. Like many of the singer’s hits, ‘Buzz Back Girl’ is served up nice and simple, with a heaping side of hangover.
Who will make it to the finish line?

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.
