Joe Nichols vs. Hunter Hayes – The Showdown
Joe Nichols‘ new song continues to be amongst the hottest Showdown songs of the year. ‘Yeah’ topped ‘Beachin” by Jake Owen over the weekend, setting up a song battle with one of the highlight performers from the 2014 Grammys. Hunter Hayes has released ‘Invisible’ after a stirring performance on Sunday night (Jan. 26).
Hayes’ new song has an anti-bullying theme. ‘Invisible’ is a lyric anyone who has felt like an outcast can relate to, and the 22-year-old from Louisiana gives a pretty inspiring pep talk. He may need to fire his fans up to beat Nichols’ latest however, as it’s up to fans to decide which song moves on to a new round.
