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.

Listen to clips of both Pickler and Bentley’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.
