Keith Urban vs. Kellie Pickler – The Showdown
Two hot country-stars-turned-television-stars will square off in this week’s first Showdown. Keith Urban is the champion by way of beating Thomas Rhett‘s new single over the weekend. ‘Little Bit of Everything’ took a commanding lead and held on while Rhett’s faithful came charging back.
Today, the first track from Urban’s upcoming album will face the new song by Kellie Pickler. ‘Someone Somewhere Tonight’ is a soaring ballad that finds the singer giving her most impressive vocal performance yet. She’s surely picked up new fans as a contestant on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ but can she top the ‘American Idol’ judge?
Listen to clips of both Urban and Pickler’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday 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 Wednesday.

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.
