The Showdown: Kellie Pickler vs. Keith Urban
"Feeling Tonight" is the first taste we've had of Pickler's upcoming new studio album, and it's an amalgam of everything that's good about all of her work. It's not as light as her early pop country singles, but not as traditional as more recent efforts that have seen her excluded from country radio. Instead, it strikes a balance for an up-tempo single that could be her return to mainstream radio.
Urban's new single is a very unique offering from the superstar. "John Cougar, John Deere and John 3:16" is a funky, very cleverly worded look at Urban's next studio album, and it is a surefire hit single for the superstar, touching on life's lessons with a lyrical montage that everyone will find something to identify with. Will Urban get past Pickler, or will she continue her Showdown run?
