Jon Pardi vs. Dierks Bentley – The Showdown

The California native will face off against another singer touched by that famous Bakersfield sound. Dierks Bentley's new single 'Drunk on a Plane' is a change of pace for a man who has made a career of keeping fans guessing. The dark, comedic heartbreaker is from his just released 'Riser' album.

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.
