John King‘s fans burned past Blake Shelton earlier this week, can they do the same to Darius Rucker? ‘Tonight, Tonight’ is a three-time Showdown champion after knocking off ‘Neon Light’ on Monday and Tuesday. Now, the love song will take on ‘Homegrown Honey.’

Rucker’s new single is the first from an upcoming album. The upbeat love song falls right in that groove that every great song from the singer falls into. The lyrics are warm and visual, and his vocal performance is outstanding. But will fans remember to vote today?

Listen to clips of both King and Rucker’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday 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 Friday.

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.
