The Showdown starts with a clean slate as Brantley Gilbert's 'One Hell of an Amen' wins its fifth straight victory and enters the Hall of Fame. Now, Sara Evans and Little Big Town are squaring off with their latest singles.

Evans has just released 'Put My Heart Down,' a pop-country track that describes a very toxic relationship and plays to all of her strengths. Little Big Town's new song is 'Girl Crush,' a slow, aching ballad that is sonically and lyrically unlike anything else at country radio today. Which one of these artists will move on to the next round?

Listen to clips of both Evans' and LBT'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.
