Kellie Pickler fans will tell you she released the best song of 2013, but Kacey Musgraves‘ faithful might say the same. Neither had a huge year on the country charts, but both of these Hottest Country Star of 2013 competitors made a splash in different ways. So, who had the better year? 

Pickler released ‘Someone Somewhere Tonight’ and ‘Little Big Gypsy’ from her upcoming ‘The Woman I Am’ album. The video to the ballad featured her ‘Dancing With the Stars’ partner Derek Hough. The two won the competition in May, and left fans of the show with one of the more breathtaking performances of all time.

Musgraves is one of the year’s most inspiring newcomers. The ‘Follow Your Arrow’ and ‘Merry Go ‘Round’ singer is known for her casual delivery of powerful songs. She’s also one of the top songwriters in Nashville, having co-written ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ for Miranda Lambert.

Vote up to once a day, every day, until the poll closes at 11:59PM ET on Nov. 3, 2013. Round 2 will begin on Nov. 4, with the winner of this battle facing either Lambert or Danielle Bradbery. The winner of the male and female brackets will square off for the finals, which will be decided by Nov. 22.
