The Showdown: Keith Urban vs. Dierks Bentley
Taste of Country readers have been turning out to vote like crazy for Urban's song, which pairs a very innovative, clever lyric with an up-tempo, fun bed track to create a unique summer single. The song is up against "Riser," the title song from Bentley's current album, which is one of the most critically acclaimed of the last two years. The track is an inspirational ode to overcoming every obstacle life can put in your path. Will Bentley's fans turn out to vote, or is Urban headed for the Hall of Fame?
Listen to clips of both Urban and Bentley’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Monday 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 Monday.
Listen to Keith Urban, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16″

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.
