Kellie Pickler vs. Dierks Bentley – The Showdown
Kellie Pickler was up against superstar country trio the Band Perry over the weekend, and her fans were relentless. Despite stiff competition, ‘Little Bit Gypsy’ took nearly two-thirds of the votes, meaning the new single will move on to face a new challenger in Dierks Bentley on Monday and Tuesday.
Bentley’s ‘I Hold On’ is the second single from his upcoming ‘Riser’ album. The nostalgic love song is an uptempo mix of the singer’s old and new styles. However, Pickler has proven to be one of the most popular artists when it comes to song battles, so he’ll need all of his fans to bring their best effort.
