Lauren Alaina vs. Eli Young Band – The Showdown
Lauren Alaina‘s ‘Georgia Peaches’ is on the verge of Taste of Country Showdown immortality. With one more win, the hit would become the third song enshrined in the Showdown Hall of Fame, joining Scotty McCreery‘s ‘The Trouble With Girls’ and Brantley Gilbert‘s ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.’
Alaina’s second single from ‘Wildflower’ easily topped Keith Urban‘s ‘You Gonna Fly’ last week. The song might only grow more popular in her final week, as her fans mobilize to push the sassy single about life as a Georgia girl into hallowed grounds. Fans who’ve seen her perform it on the Jason Aldean tour know it’s amongst her favorites to sing. She didn’t write it, but it seems to be written for her.
The Eli Young Band‘s new song ‘Even if It Breaks Your Heart’ is Alaina’s competition this week. The second single from ‘Life at Best’ tells the story of a young artist trying to make it in Nashville. It’s a story the band knows almost too well, as they struggled to crack radio until finding a hit in ‘Crazy Girl.’ Listen to both songs, and decide which is your favorite to see who will win this week’s Showdown. Voting ends on Feb. 5 at 11:59PM ET.
