Ronnie Dunn vs. Thompson Square – The Showdown
By the slimmest of margins, Ronnie Dunn‘s new song ‘Let the Cowboy Rock’ squeaked by Sugarland‘s ‘Run’ last week. Barely a percentage point separated the two songs, but in this “winner take all” system only Dunn will advance to face a new challenger. His latest single is halfway to being enshrined in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
This week’s challenger is the newest song from married country duo Thompson Square. ‘Glass’ features Shawna Thompson on lead vocals for the first time, and her handling of the lyrics is as delicate as the message she’s delivering. The song is the fourth single from the band’s self-titled album.
So far, Ronnie Dunn has knocked out hits from Gloriana and Sugarland. His new song ‘Let the Cowboy Rock’ is an example of many of the uptempo, rock-and-roll country songs found on his self-titled album. Listen to both songs and decide which you like better. Vote before Sunday (Feb. 26) at 11:59PM.
