The Showdown: Reba McEntire vs. Blake Shelton
McEntire's new song, "Until They Don't Love You," is the second single from her latest album, Love Somebody, and it's also one of the most musical songs at country radio right now. Its strong instrumentation and big backing vocals really make it stand out, and the icon's fans have been turning out to vote for it very actively.
Shelton's latest is "Gonna," which is a good-time song that reminds one of some of his other radio hits. The song portrays the singer as a single man looking for love, and features some interesting beat-boxing for a fun summer single. Which one of these songs should move on to the next Showdown?
