The Showdown: Pat Green vs. Cassadee Pope
Green's new single is a tear-jerking track that explores the conflicted feelings parents have about the time they have to spend away from their children in order to provide for them. The Texas artist's loyal fans came through in a major way, giving him 67 percent of the vote over the new single from David Nail.
Pope's new song is also very emotional. "I Am Invincible" sees the veteran of The Voice exploring an inspirational theme, while delivering a vocal performance that demonstrates a new side to her impressive range. Will it be enough to get her past Green, or will he make it two Showdown victories in a row?

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.
