The Showdown: Keith Urban vs. Florida Georgia Line
Urban's brand-new single, "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16," is the first we've heard from his forthcoming studio record, and it's got the anticipation building for what's next from the superstar. The song is fun, up-tempo enough for a summer hit, but is much more substantial than typical summer party fare, with clever turns of phrase all through the lyrics.
Florida Georgia Line have also struck upon some clever phrasing with their new single, "Anything Goes," which is the title song of their current album. The duo are visiting familiar territory in terms of subject matter, with a truck, a river and some drinking with girls, but doing it in a slightly different way that makes it seem fresh and fun. Will they be able to get past Urban, or will he go on to another Showdown round?
