Old Dominion vs. Jake Owen – The Showdown
Country five-piece Old Dominion have knocked two superstar songs from the Showdown challengers circle. Their debut single 'Shut Me Up' comes after nearly a decade of hard work on the road and in the writing room. This weekend, they'll face a man who has worked equally hard over the last decade.
Jake Owen released 'What We Ain't Got' as a way to counter the feel-good party vibe present in so many of his hit singles. The introspective ballad is vulnerable -- perhaps his most revealing since 'Startin' With Me' in 2006. This weekend, fans will get to voice their opinion on this "new Jake."

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.
