Lady Antebellum vs. Chris Janson – The Showdown
Lady Antebellum‘s new song ‘Downtown’ took over 65 percent of yesterday’s Showdown vote, knocking Lonestar latest from the winner’s circle after three days. With a late surge of phone calls on Taste of Country Nights radio, the peppy new tune from the superstar trio cruised to a victory and a chance at a country newcomer and his rowdy, trouble-making single.
Chris Janson had a record deal with BNA records in 2010, but he returns with his sound even more polished and defined on ‘Better I Don’t,’ a song that explains sometimes it’s best to stay quiet. The uptempo rocker will need support from all the Missouri-born singer’s fans to top Lady A. But bigger upsets have certainly happened.

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, and again by calling (888) 678-9995. If a song wins five days 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.
