Luke Bryan vs. Zac Brown Band – The Showdown
This week’s Showdown is a rematch. Luke Bryan and Zac Brown Band went head to head in November, with Bryan’s ‘I Don’t Want This Night to End’ edging ‘Keep Me in Mind’ by a two-to-one margin. Will it be more of the same for Bryan this time around, or can ZBB fans rally to make ‘No Hurry’ the new champion?
Bryan is looking for a win with ‘Drunk on You’ for the second week in a row. Last week, the song handily beat Eric Church‘s ‘Springsteen,’ a song that crushed ‘Feel Like a Rock Star’ by Kenny Chesney and his buddy Tim McGraw just one week earlier. There are few artists in country music that are hotter right now. In terms of sales and chart success, Bryan quickly finds himself near the top with each single he releases.
The Zac Brown Band can never be called an underdog, but with ‘No Hurry’ they’re hoping the fifth single from ‘You Get What Give’ has enough support to be crowned champion. The song relies on a vibe familiar to country music fans. The group has practically invented a new form of carefree on the radio.
