Two friends become temporary adversaries during the duration of this 2013 Taste of Country Bowl matchup. Jason Aldean and Eric Church squaring off is like a freight train ramming a freight liner. The two country music powerhouses and their teams will be battling over the next week for the right to move on to the quarterfinals in this inaugural games.

This is a fan-voted event, meaning it's up to ToC readers to decide who's more deserving of advancing to face either Blake Shelton or Kenny Chesney next week. One could consider the music, the tour, and the personality of the two singers... or you could just vote for whoever you think is cuter. Both Aldean and Church will be relying on fans to find them the energy needed to overcome the other. A win is truly a testament to the signer with the stronger fanbase.

Voting for all round one matchups will end on Jan. 13 at 11:59PM ET. You may vote up to once every hour. The winner will be announced on Feb. 4 -- one day after Super Bowl XLVII is played in New Orleans.
