Kellie Pickler vs. Parmalee – The Showdown
Parmalee gets a shot at redemption during this Showdown song battle. The country group's new song 'Close Your Eyes' fell to a red-hot Miranda Lambert song in February. Today and Friday it takes on a two-time winner in Kellie Pickler and 'Closer to Nowhere.'
Pickler's ballad topped the latest from Gloriana earlier this week, meaning she's got a shot at a Hall of Fame induction. 'Close Your Eyes' is another love song from the North Carolina-based Parmalee. It's two North Carolina acts facing head to head to move on to a new round.
Listen to clips of both Pickler’s and Parmalee’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday 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 Friday.

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.
