Jake Owen vs. LeAnn Rimes – The Showdown
The fourth single from Jake Owen's 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night' album is going for its fourth straight Showdown win today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio. 'Anywhere With You' made quick work of 'Cheat on You' by Big and Rich on Monday. Today, it'll face the lead single from LeAnn Rimes' next album 'Spitfire.'
'Borrowed' tells the embattled singer's personal story of love and heartbreak. Never has Rimes been more vulnerable than on this ballad. The topic may turn off some country fans, but plenty more will embrace her honesty. Does she have enough fans to keep Owen from going for his Hall of Fame win?
Listen to clips of both Owen and Rimes' songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour online, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. Hear the full versions of the songs tonight after 10PM on Taste of Country Nights. Help your favorite song win by placing additional votes at (888) 678-9995.

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, and again by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days 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.
