Randy Travis vs. Josh Thompson – The Showdown
Two country superstars clashed on Monday, and Randy Travis came out on top. 'Tonight I'm Playin' Possum,' his tribute to George Jones, took 60 percent of the vote to beat Brad Paisley's latest single. Today and tomorrow, the country legend will take on the latest from Josh Thompson.
Thompson returns on a new record label, but his sound is one longtime fans can still depend on. 'Cold Beer With Your Name on It' is a no-frills love song that finds the singer doing what he does best. Fans are faithfully requesting the song on radio stations nationwide, but they'll need to add Showdown voting to their to-do lists to give this cut some extra exposure.
Listen to clips of both Travis' and Thompson's songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Friday 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 Friday.

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.
