Jerrod Niemann vs. Dierks Bentley – The Showdown
It was a hard fought Showdown win for Jerrod Niemann and his fans over the weekend. The Henningsens were relentless in their get-out-the-vote campaign, but ultimately 'I Miss You' came up just short. 'Drink to That All Night' moves on to round No. 3 today and Tuesday. Niemann's competition is Dierks Bentley.
'I Hold On' was previously in the Showdown in September, but fell to Kellie Pickler's 'Little Bit Gypsie,' a song that would make the Hall of Fame for five straight wins. The track turned in a good showing however, and Bentley's fans have been asking for another challenge. The new song is the first from the singer's 'Riser' album, due out early in 2014.
Listen to clips of both Niemann and Bentley'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.

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.
