Both Tim McGraw and Luke Bryan released new albums in 2013, and both embarked on high-profile successful summer tours. The two superstars' fans also had to work hard during their Round 1 matchup to decide who would move on in this competition to determine the hottest country star of 2013. Which of these two guys do you think had the better year?

Bryan has an Entertainer of the Year trophy to show for his efforts, while McGraw has a showcase in Las Vegas that he sells out a few nights each month. The 'Southern Nights' singer has been a country mainstay for two decades, while Bryan represents the next generation. These men share millions of fans, and that's who will ultimately decide who gets to face either Jake Owen or Blake Shelton.

Vote for your favorite once every day until this round of voting ends on Nov. 10, 2013 at 11:59PM ET. The semi-final round will come next, followed by a championship round in which the top male and top female will square off.
