Luke Bryan vs. Casey James – The Showdown
Luke Bryan proved that he's one of the hottest country artists on the planet last Friday. The 'Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye' singer's fans mopped up Kelleigh Bannen's contingent to make the fourth single from 'Tailgates on Tanlines' the new Showdown champion. He'll face a repeat challenger today and tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio.
Casey James' second single from his debut album ran into a buzz saw in Jason Aldean's 'Take a Little Ride' the first time around, but the support from his faithful following made it obvious he deserves another chance. 'Cryin' on a Suitcase' will face another tough challenge in 'Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye.' The heartbreaker shows another side of the talented singer and guitarist.

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. 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.
