The Showdown: Jerrod Nieman vs. Kenny Chesney
Niemann's new single, "Blue Bandana," easily defeated Andy Grammer's country re-working of his AC hit, "Honey, I'm Good," which features Eli Young Band, taking more than 80 percent of the total vote. The mid-tempo summer song is one of the hippest songs at country radio right now.
Chesney's latest single is "Save It for a Rainy Day," and it's also a summer song, but with a twist, as the narrator's fun in the sun is interrupted by heartbreak. Which one of these songs should move on to the next Showdown?

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.
