The Showdown: Luke Bryan vs. Reba McEntire
Bryan's sexy new song is "Strip It Down," the second single from his Kill the Lights album, which lands Friday (Aug. 7). The song turns up the lyrical heat for the superstar, with a slow, seductive groove and a pop beat. The track took nearly 65 percent of the overall vote in its first Showdown face-off.
McEntire's new song is "Until They Don't Love You," the second single from her current Love Somebody album. The track is a high-energy, feisty number that features strong instrumentation and backing vocals, and its fun factor nearly belies the subject matter, which talks about realizing you love someone too late, after they've already moved on.

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.
