Lee Brice vs. Carrie Underwood – The Showdown
Lee Brice fans ganged up on Big and Rich Friday night to send the singer’s new song ‘I Drive Your Truck’ to a new round of the Showdown. The ballad led early and pulled away late during Taste of Country Nights radio. He’ll need much, much more support to topple today’s challenger, however.
Few singers in country music are hotter than Carrie Underwood. Her new ‘Blown Away’ album is amongst the year’s best, partly because of stormy songs like the one she puts up against Brice’s single today. ‘Two Black Cadillacs’ is a dark, vengeful pop-country story. It’s a side of the singer fans haven’t seen much of during her seven-year career.

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 as much as you want 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.
