The Showdown: LoCash vs. Thomas Rhett
The recently re-christened duo and the American Idol alum fought down to the last few seconds of voting, with LoCash ultimately taking the lead by a mere one percent of the vote. Their uptempo, fun-loving new single "I Love This Life" moves on to face a very tough new challenge from Thomas Rhett.
His latest, "Crash and Burn," is a very fresh take on contemporary country that draws on some serious soul influences. Written by Chris Stapleton, the song is the lead single from Rhett's highly-anticipated sophomore album.
Will Rhett's fans turn out to vote, or will LoCash's devoted voting block steamroller their way to another Showdown victory?

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.
