Pat Green has won his way into the Showdown Hall of Fame with his heartfelt new single, "While I Was Away." We're starting an all-new contest with a faceoff between Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean.

The two Georgia-born superstars are longtime friends, as well as two of the hottest acts in contemporary country music. Bryan has just released "Strip It Down," the second single from his upcoming Kill the Lights album. The sexy song invites that special someone to "dirty dance me slow in the summertime heat," leaving no room for doubt what happens after that.

Aldean brings the energy for "Gonna Know We Were Here," a rocking country track that will surely please his fans. The song described a wild night between a man and a woman that's unforgettable. These are two of the most-anticipated songs of the season, but which one will move on to another Showdown round?

Listen to clips of both Bryan and Aldean’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger 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. 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.
