The Showdown: Keith Urban vs.Blake Shelton
Urban's new single, "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16," is a cleverly-worded song with a fun, up-tempo feel that is the first taste of an upcoming album from the superstar. Shelton recently covered a Bob Dylan song, "Forever Young," for a new movie titled Max, and it takes the singer in a more serious direction, with a strong lyrical message and strings featured on the track. Will Shelton be able to get past Urban, or will the Australian-born singer-songwriter continue in his Showdown domination?
