Lauren Alaina vs. Alan Jackson – The Showdown
Lauren Alaina battled Lee Brice to the end, and by the second smallest margin of victory in Taste of Country Showdown history, her song 'Georgia Peaches' topped his 'Woman Like You.' The young singer's fans will need to keep bringing the votes if she hopes to keep advancing towards enshrinement in the Showdown Hall of Fame.
'Georgia Peaches' is the 'American Idol' runner-up's second single. The lyrics tell the story of a feisty Southern gal who lets the boys know what they can expect from a Georgia woman. In the video below, Alaina's real-life friends team up with her to tell the song's story. It's a change of pace from her emotional debut single, 'Like My Mother Does.'
Alan Jackson's just released new single is also a change of pace. 'So You Don't Have to Love Me Anymore' is the heaviest love ballad the country legend has released since tracks from his 2006 album 'Like Red on a Rose.' While fans appreciated his debut effort on Capitol Nashville, the early reviews and sentiments for this new song have been overwhelmingly positive. Listen to both songs, and vote for your favorite before the Showdown ends on Jan. 22 at 11:59PM ET.
