Luke Bryan vs. Chris Young – The Showdown
Luke Bryan is half way to enshrinement in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame with his new song ‘Drunk on You.’ The midtempo lover from the ‘Tailgates and Tanlines’ album made quick work of ‘No Hurry’ by the Zac Brown Band last week. He’ll need to keep the momentum going forward to do the same to this week’s challenger.
Chris Young just released the video for his new song ‘Neon’ last week. The honey-voiced Tennessee native sings of a different kind of love, that between a man and his bar. The song is the title track from his latest album, that earned him a Male Vocalist of the Year nomination at the ACM Awards.
Bryan’s song is quickly closing in Top 10 hit status, while it’s already become the third song from Tailgates and Tanlines’ to be certified Gold for over 500K singles sold. The video continues the story told in his previous song ‘I Don’t Want This Night to End.’ Listen to both of this week’s songs and decide which you like best. You can only vote once and voting ends on May 20, 2012 at 11:59PM ET.
