The Showdown: Jon Pardi vs. Dustin Lynch
After an intense round of Showdown voting, Jon Pardi's new single is moving forward. He's just won a hard-fought victory over Granger Smith and will face a new challenge from Dustin Lynch today and over the weekend.
Pardi's new single, "Head Over Boots," is the first we've heard of his forthcoming sophomore album, and it takes a turn away from partying themes, delivering a swinging feel paired with a lyric that is romantic, without being awkwardly sentimental.
Lynch has just released "Mind Reader," and it's more representative of his current album, Where It's At, than any other single he has yet released from the project. It's a sexy mid-tempo track that plays to his R&B influences, and should appeal to his rapidly-growing fan base. Will he be able to top Pardi in this matchup?
