It wasn't easy, but fans of Kenny Chesney pushed his new single 'When I See This Bar' past the new song from Pistol Annies earlier this week. Chesney's cut from 'Life on a Rock' took 54 percent of the vote, meaning he's the new champion tasked with taking on hot country newcomer Drake White this weekend. 

White's debut is called 'The Simple Life.' The song is a feel-good, country-Americana jam that features the singer's unique style and voice. It's easy to fall for some of the quirks of this song, and country fans are doing just that -- quickly. He'll need full support from his faithful to top the superstar, however.

Listen to clips of both Chesney's and White's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Monday 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 Monday.

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.
