The Showdown: Jason Michael Carroll vs. Chris Young
Jason Michael Carroll is closing in on the Hall of Fame with his new single, "God Only Knows." His fans turned out again overwhelmingly in his fourth straight Showdown -- but now he'll face perhaps the toughest challenge yet from Chris Young.
Carroll's latest single is a gritty plea for forgiveness, and it's the lead single from his new album, What Color Is Your Sky. It's connected with his fans in a major way, garnering enormous support over the course of the last four contests.
Chris Young's brand-new single, "I'm Comin' Over," is the first taste we've had of his forthcoming fifth studio album, the follow-up to A.M. It's a departure from the rowdy, good-time material from that album, bringing Young's signature voice to the center of the track for a power ballad that's about a couple who can't seem to let each other go for the final time.

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.
