Love and Theft vs. Hayden Panettiere – The Showdown
Love and Theft is on a roll. The Nashville duo’s new song ‘Runnin’ Out of Air’ easily topped the new single by Toby Keith yesterday and last night on Taste of Country Nights radio. Today, the catchy pop-country song will square off against a Hollywood star who’s turned country.
Hayden Panettiere plays Juliette Barnes on the ABC drama ‘Nashville.’ Her first single from the series is the uptempo, done-me-wrong ‘Telescope.’ Early on, the song is getting a warm response from radio. It will be interesting to see if the actress-turned-singer has developed a strong enough fan base to push her to a new round on Friday.

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.
