Lonestar vs. LeAnn Rimes – The Showdown
Country supergroup Lonestar inched closer to a full-on comeback last week, as ‘Maybe Someday’ topped newcomer Charlie Worsham‘s debut single in the Showdown. The Richie McDonald-led group will face a more familiar competitor today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio. LeAnn Rimes has released ‘Borrowed,’ a new single from her upcoming ‘Spitfire’ album.
Rimes’s song is an autobiographical look at the difficult time she had with falling in love with Eddie Cibrian. She presents the other woman’s point of view with sympathy and compassion. Will fans be moved enough to vote for her ballad over the latest from Lonestar? Both artists will need to galvanize their fans to win and move on to a new round on Wednesday.
Listen to clips of both Lonestar and Rimes’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour online, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. Hear the full versions of the songs tonight after 10PM on Taste of Country Nights. Help your favorite song win by placing additional votes at (888) 678-9995. You can listen to the show online through any of the 41 radio stations that carry it. Voting will end tonight at 10:40PM CT.

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.
