The Showdown: Jennifer Nettles vs. Lauren Alaina
This Showdown is a battle between two beautiful women in country. Jennifer Nettles was victorious over Carrie Underwood over the weekend and now she's battling against Lauren Alaina on Monday and Tuesday.
Nettles' ballad, "Unlove You," is the center of this Showdown -- and it's something new for the solo singer. The song is emotional and raw and it's a preview of what's to come for Nettles. It'll quickly become a favorite, especially for Sugarland fans out there.
Nettles' competition is Alaina's new song, "Next Boyfriend." The sound is a more mature one for Alaina but she's finding a way to encompass all of her fans with this one -- and it's very addictive. The song is fun and a mix of pop and country that'll get you singing along.
Listen to clips of both Nettles' and Alaina's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Wednesday.
