Randy Travis vs. Blackjack Billy – The Showdown
Country stars keep falling at the feet of Randy Travis and his fans. Over the weekend, the singer’s single ‘Tonight I’m Playin’ Possum’ topped ‘Sweet Annie,’ the latest from Zac Brown Band. That makes three in a row for Travis. Today and Tuesday, his song will take on one of the jams of the summer.
‘The Booze Cruise’ is the debut effort from Blackjack Billy. The uptempo country rocker is about as much fun as you can legally have on the radio. This group isn’t as well-known as the legend is, so they’ll need each one of their fans to step up to vote early and often.
Listen to clips of both Travis and Blackjack Billy’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Wednesday at 8AM ET, so come back and vote often to be sure your artist wins. The winner of this matchup will face a new challenger on Wednesday.

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.
