No singer in the Taste of Country Top Vocalist of 2016 contest earned more votes than Carrie Underwood did in Round 1. The superstar dominated her matchup, taking nearly 90 percent of the tally. This round, she faces more experienced competition.

Martina McBride made quick work of Miranda Lambert in Round 1 as well, taking nearly two-thirds of the vote. McBride’s resurgence will include a new album in 2016. “Reckless” is her new single and the title track to an album expected later this year on Nash Icon records.

Underwood is arguably the greatest vocalist of the last decade. Every single showcases her pristine vocal capabilities, So much power, so much control … so much emotion. The Oklahoman is a vocalist to marvel at, and surely a favorite in this competition.

Sixteen singers were chosen to be a part of this Top Vocalist of 2016 competition. We chose from the year’s most active male and female vocalists and split them up so the top male and top female square off in a finale later this month. The winner of this Round 2 match will face either Reba McEntire or Cassadee Pope.
