The margin is getting smaller, but Randy Travis just keeps winning the Taste of Country Showdown. Fans lined up to support ‘Tonight I’m Playin’ Possum’ once again this week, pushing it past ‘Cold Beer With Your Name on It,’ the latest from Josh Thompson. This weekend, the George Jones tribute song will go up against the new single from the Zac Brown Band

‘Sweet Annie’ is a sweet ballad that fans of ‘Uncaged’ quickly chose as a favorite upon the album’s release last year. The group’s harmonies are as strong as ever on this love song. No one has been able to top Travis yet, but maybe the Georgia-raised singer and his bandmates can get the job done.

Listen to clips of both Travis’ and the Zac Brown Band’s songs and vote for your favorite here. You can vote once every hour until this Showdown ends on Monday 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 Monday.

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.
