Maddie and Tae vs. Brothers Osborne – The Showdown
There’s absolutely no denying that ‘Girl in a Country Song’ is hot. Newcomers Maddie & Tae have used their edgy debut single to battle past several artists in the Taste of Country Showdown, most recently knocking Randy Houser out of the ring. Now, they face a new one from the Brothers Osborne.
‘Rum’ is light on the heart and easy on the ears, pairing a warm love with a cool drink on a hot summer day — ideal for the season. No, Brothers Osborne aren’t trying to make a statement about the state of country music in 2014, but perhaps you’re looking for something more carefree these days, compared to the grit from the ‘Girl in a Country Song’? That’s up to you to decide.

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.
