Love and Theft are surging to the Showdown Hall of Fame. Yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio, the Nashville duo watched their new song 'Runnin' Out of Air' stomp the country debut of 'Nashville' star Hayden Panettiere. The new single took almost 90 percent of the votes on its way to another round. 

Today, Love and Theft will face off against another famous duo. Montgomery Gentry have released an emotional new song called 'I'll Keep the Kids.' Eddie Montgomery's vocals spell out what is truly important when a marriage falls apart. He and Troy Gentry will need all of their fans to vote if they hope to slow down the train that is Love and Theft.

Listen to clips of both Love and Theft's and Montgomery Gentry'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. Call as many times as you like! 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 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.
