On the night he begins his Night Train Tour in Bossier City, La., Jason Aldean's new single '1994' faces off against the newest from Billy Dean in the Showdown song battle. The Aldean Army will need to storm the online poll and phone lines at Taste of Country Nights radio to make sure the track from 'Night Train' reaches a new round on Friday. 

Two new challengers square off today after Jake Owen's 'Anywhere With You' won its fifth straight Showdown on Wednesday, meaning the song is retired to the Hall of Fame. Dean's 'I Can't Leave a Good Thing' is an undeniably catchy, pure country song from the hittmaker. You'll find it on his 2012 album 'A Man of Good Fortune.'

Listen to clips of both Aldean and Dean's 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. You can listen to the show online through any of the 41 radio stations that carry it. Voting will end tonight at 10:40PM CT.
